The Development & Outreach Department of Human Rights Watch (“HRW”) is seeking an intern for its Scandinavia team in the Stockholm office. Ideally, the candidate will be available starting in late August/early September 2018 until mid-January 2019.

Internships are unpaid. Students are often able to arrange academic credit, as HRW internships often offer direct exposure to the workings of an international human rights organisation, close supervision by HRW staff, interaction with other Stockholm based and international organisations and opportunities to attend lectures, trainings and special events relating to human rights. Students should check with their individual academic institutions for requirements.
