Internships

The ICJ regularly hosts internships and acknowledges their contribution.

The ICJ regularly offers internships which provide:

  • Practical experience of human rights legal and advocacy work at the international level;
  • Exposure to the functioning of the United Nations human rights bodies and mechanisms;
  • A multicultural, multilingual and multiethnic environment;
  • An understanding of programming and donor relations;
  • Professional and personal relations with colleagues and counterparts who will provide long-term professional advice, encouragement and support;
  • Career development – for many, an internship with the ICJ has established a lifelong commitment and career in the international human rights field.

Requirements

Interns, externs or trainees will be accepted:

  • Where the ICJ itself advertises through an open recruitment process for a paid internship, that meets the legal requirements of the country in which the internship will be based.
  • Where the internship is funded through a programme established by a university/donor organisation/government scheme or equivalent, and meets the legal requirements of the country in which the intern will be based.
  • Where the internship, even if not funded, forms part of a university or professional training scheme for which the intern receives academic credits in lieu of payment, and the ICJ has established an agreement with the relevant academic institution to host interns under the programme.

Applicants are expected to be:

  • A postgraduate student or currently completing a postgraduate degree in law, political science, international relations or a related field. Priority will be given to graduates who have or are studying law, especially human rights or international law. Interns working for non-programme staff may be required to have studied another field related to their work at the ICJ;
  • Dedicated to the legal protection and promotion of human rights;
  • Well-organised, have strong research, analytical and drafting skills and able to work independently;
  • Highly motivated, able to work as part of a multicultural team and willing to apply themselves in a frequently pressurised environment; and
  • Have spoken and written fluency in English and desirably French and/or another foreign language.

Responsibilities

Based on the needs of the ICJ, the candidate’s interests, as well as on the requirements included in grant/fellowship applications, when applicable.

Posts and duration

The ICJ offers continuous openings for internships in all its programmes and projects and for both legal and non-legal positions. The number of available intern positions depends on the resources available at the ICJ to accommodate the interns.

Internships may be on either a full time or a part-time basis, for a maximum of 6 months.

Unsolicited applications can be addressed with a resume, cover letter and the names and contact details of at least two referees by email.
