Internship & Fellowship Programme
The Human Rights Policy Studies Department (HPS) permanently has a multidisciplinary and international team. GHR recruits non-paid interns and welcome applications from students and graduates in international relations, international law, human rights, political science and economics, who are motivated in the promotion and protection of human rights and social justice.
Preference is given to post-graduate students in law, human rights and international relations, to long-term interns (5-6 months) and to the candidates coming from universities and research centers, with whom GHR has signed contracts or Memorandum of Understandings.
GHR ensures that its interns and fellows are trained during their stay with the organization. Interns and fellows participate in the Geneva Courses conducted during their internship with GHR. Each week, interns, fellows and other members of the HPS team receive a briefing from GHR trainers on the main features and developments of the human rights meetings they are monitoring.
GHR will establish more partnerships with universities and research centres and recruit 30 to 40 interns each year.
