March 8, 2012 at 9:01 am Leave a comment

Human Rights Watch is seeking two full-time interns to assist with HRW’s work on the case against Hissène Habré. The internship will last a minimum of six months. The interns will be supervised by HRW’s Counsel in this matter, and will help HRW keep in touch with HRW’s partners in Senegal and Chad, draft advocacy letters and press releases, monitor press and events and assist with research. The interns will also be responsible for administrative tasks, including filing, translating, accounting and helping staff and partners with travel arrangements.
This internship is unpaid. Students are often able to arrange academic credit, as HRW internships often offer direct exposure to the workings of an international human rights organization, close supervision by the HRW staff, interaction with other U.S. and international organizations and foreign and domestic government officials, and opportunities to attend lectures, trainings and special events relating to human rights. Students should check with their individual academic institutions for requirements.

These internships are open to law students, law graduates and graduate students with expertise in international criminal law or international relations. Applicants should be well-organized, self-motivated and reliable, with a strong interest in human rights. Proficiency in both English and French is required.

Application Instructions: Please apply immediately by emailing a letter of interest in English or French, resume, names or letters of reference and, if possible, a brief, unedited writing sample in French or English, (no calls or email inquiries, please) Please use “Habré Internship Application” as the subject of your email and specify your dates of availability.
