European Human Rights Advocacy Centre-Internships

by | May 24, 2016

The European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (EHRAC) is inviting applications from Russian speakers for a four-month internship placement (2-3 days per week). EHRAC is based within the School of Law at Middlesex University and operates as a non-governmental organisation (NGO).

The four-month internship placement will take place in EHRAC’s offices in Middlesex University. Successful candidates will be required to carry out both substantive and administrative tasks relating to EHRAC’s work.

You can find more information about the vacancy here.

The deadline for applications is Wednesday 8th June 2016. Interviews will take place in the following week, and the successful intern can expect to begin in late June. The length of the internship can be negotiated.

Postgraduate students and recent graduates are welcome to apply.

EHRAC assists lawyers and NGOs from Russia, Ukraine and the South Caucasus taking cases to the European Court of Human Rights and provides training to build the capacity of the human rights communities. Issues tackled through our work include: extrajudicial executions, torture, ‘disappearances’, freedom of expression, and ethnic discrimination. We have an exemplary record of bringing cases before the European Court, receiving worldwide media coverage from the likes of The Guardian and Newsweek for our landmark litigation work.

EHRAC is based at Middlesex University in Hendon, London. Unfortunately we can only accept candidates who already have the right to work/volunteer in the UK, as we cannot facilitate visa applications. Please consider this when applying.
