Praxis Internship Program

Internship Opportunity

Research Intern 

Undergraduate or graduate students of law, political sciences or other relevant social sciences are encouraged to apply.

The intern will conduct research on subjects that fall within our five programme areas (status and socioeconomic rights, anti-discrimination, gender equality, migration, and child rights) according to our needs at the time of the internship. The intern will be expected to synthesize large amounts of information into clear and concise reports that will be used to shape our programme activities. Because of the fast paced environment of Praxis, the intern may be expected to jump into a variety of tasks, working in coordination with different sections of the organization. These might include drafting press releases or assisting with advocacy efforts. The intern may also have the opportunity to go on a field visit to assist the legal aid team.

The goal of the internship is to provide the intern with hands on experience in a human rights NGO. In addition to the research, the intern will learn about the inner workings of an NGO. The intern will work closely with their appointed supervisor to receive on the job training, develop practical skills and effectively manage tasks within the organization. While most of the internship requires strong independent work, the intern will have the opportunity to discuss issues and offer input regularly with their supervisor. It is critical that the intern is self-motivated, flexible and is good with time management.

Commitment

Duration: 4 weeks, 8 weeks, 16 weeks, 26 weeks

The intern will be responsible for finding and securing their own accommodation and determining their visa requirements.
