Internships: One vacancy (Session full for the 3-month period starting in January 2013)
Human Rights Without Frontiers offers placements for internships of varying duration from one to five months depending on the applicant's availability and education plan.
The aim of the internship programme is to offer to under-graduate and post-graduate students the opportunity to expand the scope of their studies by acquiring practical knowledge and a better understanding of human rights issues and advocacy.
The internships are designed to be a learning experience. Assignments would vary in terms of content and of the intern's profile with the purpose to match the interests of the intern with the needs of the organisation. Assignments would be designed either within on-going programs or on an ad-hoc basis.
The work plan would include:
- attendance of conferences at the European Parliament and think-tanks;
- research and synthesis of information on specific topics;
- cataloguing knowledge and information;
- preparing reports, analyses and interviews when assignments and responsibilities are commensurate with the intern's experience.
Human Rights Without Frontiers views the integration of interns in its programme of activities as a long-term investment in the promotion of human rights worldwide. On the one hand, they have the potential to offer the most recent thinking and research tools in their area of study and to contribute to the activities of the organisation. On the other, they would gain experience that would allow them to pursue human rights advocacy in the decades to come at different institutions and at different levels.
We view human rights issues and advocacy as an area of challenges and opportunities and expect interns to share our commitment and enthusiasm.
Duration of the internships: 3 months (not in summer) starting at mid-September, mid-January and mid-April
