International staff members play an integral role in PCHR’s work.  At any given time there maybe up to 4 international staff members – some contract employees and some interns.  PCHR’s internship program:

  • Provides interns with an understanding of overall human rights issues in the OPT and an overview of mechanisms available within and to a local human rights organization;
  • Enhances the intern’s skills with concrete experience;
  • Draws from the experience of students or graduates of various cultures, skills and backgrounds.

 

Background required

Applicants are required to have:

  • A degree in international human rights law, international humanitarian law, or international criminal law;

Or

  • A degree in a relevant social science, with a special focus on human rights, conflict, the Middle East and/or the OPT;

Or

  • A degree in multimedia and/or design, with a focus on advocacy or campaign work.

All applicants should be fluent in English and possess advanced drafting skills, as well as solid proficiency in MS Word. Preference will be given to interns who have relevant working experience. Arabic language skills are a plus.

 

Assignment/Tasks

Interns are assigned to the various PCHR Units according to the needs of the office and their own areas of interest. They are involved in drafting analytical papers, reports, editing, press releases, and researching human rights issues.

 

Dates and duration of the internship program

Internships last for a minimum of three months and can be extended in agreement with the administration of PCHR.

 

Access to the Gaza Strip

However, as you are probably aware, access to the Gaza Strip due to the blockade is currently very restricted – and this had severely impacted upon our internship program. PCHR is unable to organize your entry into Gaza, which means that you will have to do so on your own.

 

 

Conditions

PCHR provides interns with accommodation, often shared with other interns. In addition, PCHR reimburses the airfare upon the intern’s arrival in Gaza.

 

Application Procedure

In order to apply for an internship please send the following documents to pchr@pchrgaza.org:

  • Your resumé;
  • Cover letter;
  • An unedited English writing sample on a human rights related topic.
