We are seeking an intern to accompany communities in the Africa region to secure their environmental and human rights when negatively impacted by international investments. This internship is suitable for current or recently graduated students with knowledge in international law; development and economics; public policy; and/or environment and human rights. The internship is expected to last three months, with a commitment of approximately 15 hours per week, with the possibility of extension for a further three months. It would be well-suited for current law students (subject to course commitments) or recent law graduates prior to undertaking their postgraduate diploma.
This internship is supported by the 2023 John Ruggie Fellowship on Business and Human Rights, in honor of Professor John Ruggie, a preeminent scholar-practitioner in the field of international affairs. The Fellowship Program was created by Shift – the nonprofit, mission-driven organization dedicated to implementing the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights of which John was the founding chair – in collaboration with John’s family to honor his life and legacy.
