Applications open: Intern opportunity at the Australian Permanent Mission to the United Nations Human Rights Council, Geneva

Australian Permanent Mission

Enjoyed reading about my experiences so far interning at the Australian Permanent Mission to the Human Rights Council, Geneva?

Interested in human rights and diplomacy?

Seeking an opportunity to get involved?

If you answered yes, keep reading below! I encourage all Aussies to consider this opportunity, especially ATSI people.

The Australian Permanent Mission to the United Nations offers the opportunity for Australians to undertake voluntary internships on a self-funded basis during sessions of the Human Rights Council and the Universal Periodic Review.

The Mission seeks people with the skills, education, knowledge and abilities to contribute to advancing Australia’s national interests in the UN. Applicants should possess relevant qualifications and background, with preference being given to those who have completed, or are completing, tertiary studies in areas such as political science, international relations, law, human rights, environment or international development. Prior exposure to, or demonstrated knowledge of, the United Nations system is highly desirable.

Applications for internships in 2015/16 will be open from:

1 – 31 December 2014 (for the May – July 2015 UPR/HRC Sessions)
1 – 30 April 2015 (for the September – November 2015 HRC/UPR Sessions)
1 – 31 July 2015 (for the February – March 2016 HRC Session)
