The Development and Outreach Department of Human Rights Watch (“HRW”) is seeking interns for the Geneva office. Ideally, interns will be available for at least 3 months beginning in March 2018. 

This internship is best suited for those individuals interested in gaining experience in a large, well-organized, international non-profit organization. Interns will gain knowledge and skills in conducting desk research, using databases, event planning, and fundraising. Interns will learn about the organization's priority human rights issues. In order to provide a valuable and well-rounded internship experience, interns will attend planning and department meetings with staff and may have the opportunity to take advantage of in-house trainings and briefings. 

Internships are unpaid. However, interns may be reimbursed for some lunch and local travel costs as pre-approved by HRW and in accordance with HRW policy. Students are often able to arrange academic credit, as HRW internships often offer direct exposure to the workings of an international human rights organization, close supervision by the HRW staff, interaction with other international organizations and foreign and domestic government officials, and opportunities to attend lectures, trainings, and special events relating to human rights. Students should check with their individual academic institutions for requirements.
