The Freedom Rights Project is seeking two interns to work with one of the Project’s founders and principal investigators based in Hamburg.
The Freedom Rights Project is a unique research initiative that began in May 2012, and is administered by the Center for Political Studies (CEPOS) in Copenhagen. The work of the Project will include convening groups of leading jurists, philosophers, historians and other scholars, as well as human rights defenders, to clarify the meaning of human rights; empirical research on such topics as the inflation, dilution and politicization of human rights; the publication of editorials, research papers and books; the preparation of curricula for university students; and advocacy in international institutions.
We are looking for intern(s) who are flexible, self-motivating and willing to do a combination of routine and interesting research, and potentially some clerical and technical (website) work. An understanding of human rights principles and knowledge of international human rights law will be helpful. Fluent written and spoken English is essential. The position is unpaid and terms are flexible. Interns will work from their own space using own computers, with regular review and supervision meetings depending on location.
