We offer internships to students and those who have recently completed their studies at university or college. The internship is unpaid and full-time. Primarily we offer internships to students of human rights, law, political science, international relations, journalism, communications or similar. We expect that you share our values, have a genuine interest in human rights and a fundamental knowledge about our work.

Our departments plan, coordinate and implement Civil Rights Defenders work in our regions, which also includes advocacy and lobbying in Sweden. As an intern at Civil Rights Defenders you will become a part of our team and primarily assist the Program Director and current department in their mission.
