Providing interns with an opportunity to contribute substantively to the work of Rights and Humanity is the highest priority when assigning internship tasks. Interns are typically involved in activities such as: researching issues related to human rights, development, health, globalisation and conflict; drafting reports for international organisations or for conferences; and assistance to programme activities.
Interns may be required to fulfil some administrative duties as required by the projects in which they are involved.
In the past, interns have been involved in some exciting initiatives at Rights and Humanity. Below are examples of the kind of work interns have pursued in the past:
- Assisting in the drafting of the report of the United Nations Independent Expert on the Right to Development in Geneva
- Conducting background research and writing text for a report commissioned by the UK Department of International Development on humanitarian intervention and human rights
- Attending a Wilton Park conference with high-level international experts in the field of finance and development and assisting in the drafting of the key-note address
- Helping organise and participate in The Sky’s the Limit, an international conference on climate change co-organised by Rights and Humanity, November 2008, London.
