The Fellowship gives legal professionals the opportunity to work within a government in low- and middle-income countries as a civil servant reporting to local managers. Because the demand for Oxford Policy Fellows is led by host governments – rather than being imposed by an outside agency – Fellows’ positions are tailored to the host government’s specific need and context, meaning they are more likely to make a real impact.
The Fellowship is open to applicants of all nationalities that are qualified lawyers. Ideal applicants will also have a Master’s degree in law, Public Policy or related field. Applicants should have excellent academic qualifications and have a few years of relevant work experience. Strong interpersonal skills and interest in International Development is essential to become a Fellow.
Qualified individuals should read the attached flyer or visit www.policyfellowship.org to read more about the programme, and of course apply! Deadline for applications is on Friday 31 January 2020 at 12 noon GMT.
