Rights and Security International is currently accepting applications for its internship programme. This is an excellent opportunity to work at the cutting edge of human rights law and national security, and to gain real-time experience of high-level research and advocacy at a respected INGO. Applications are considered on a rolling basis throughout the year and will be considered depending on our capacity. The internship is unpaid and will be conducted entirely remotely. Fluency in English is required and fluency in other languages is a plus.
Successful candidates will have completed a degree in law or be working towards a post-graduate degree (such as a JD, LLM, GDL, LPC, or BPTC). The selected candidates will be able to demonstrate strong research skills and, ideally, will have already completed coursework in international human rights law, international humanitarian law, or international refugee and asylum law, or on national security issues. We request that applicants commit for a minimum of 2 months and for at least 8 hours per week.
We encourage interested applicants to submit a copy of their CV demonstrating their experience in the online form below. If you have any questions regarding this role, please get in touch with a request for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Unfortunately, given the scale of interest, only selected candidates will be contacted.
