The Advocacy Department of Human Rights Watch (HRW) is currently seeking a student intern for its Paris office. Ideally, the intern will be available for 6 months, starting in January 2020.
The student will intern closely with members of the Advocacy team, especially the France Director and the Advocacy Coordinator. The internship will primarily focus on advocacy-related activities, which include:
This internship is best suited for individuals interested in gaining experience within a small office of a large, well-organized, international non-profit organization. In order to provide a valuable and well-rounded internship experience, interns may attend planning and department staff meetings and may have the opportunity to attend in-house trainings and briefings. Students will also have opportunities to attend lectures, trainings, professional development workshops, special events relating to human rights, as well as network with other HRW interns, volunteers, and employees. As an HRW intern, students will take skills acquired in school and apply them in a professional setting.
Compensation: Interns will receive EUR 3.75 per hour that they are in the office. Human Rights Watch will also reimburse 50% of the intern’s transportation costs. Students are often able to arrange academic credit, as HRW internships may offer direct exposure to the workings of an international human rights organization, close supervision by the HRW staff, and interaction with other international organizations and foreign and domestic government officials. Students should check with their individual academic institutions for requirements.
