Why be a Euro-Med intern?

If you’re interested in gaining firsthand experience and getting hands-on training on human rights advocacy using various tools and instruments, Euro-Med is the right place for you to start your journey!

An internship with Euro-Med, online or at any of its offices means you will gain a perspective on the situation of human rights violations across the MENA region. You will also gain knowledge on international laws as well as customs, conventions and agreements relating to our key focus-issues starting from extrajudicial executions and torture to treatment of civilians during armed conflicts, detention of prisoners of conscience as well as refugee rights and migrants and rights of women and children.

Working in a friendly, home-like environment, you will be presented with a real opportunity to engage directly with the Euro-Med family across different offices. Getting involved with our outstanding human rights experts, you will become part of one or more of Euro-Med teams; namely, the report/press releases writing team, the social media team, the translation team, the research team, or the legal advisory team. You will also contribute to advancing the Euro-Med vision, engage in organizational policy, participate in meetings, and you will be exposed to work relating to UN bodies. The greater the amount of responsibility you can shoulder, the more potential for growth you can develop.
