Internship with the MENA programme
UI's Middle East and North Africa Programme conducts research, analysis and activities focusing on the region's political, economic, and social conditions. Two areas are of particular interest: conflict management and geopolitics, and socio-economic development. More concretely the programme deals with conflict management in the Persian Gulf and societal changes in the MENA-region countries. For autumn 2019 the programme is recruiting an intern who, under the supervision of programme staff, will work on these themes.
Internship with the Asia programme
UI's Asia Programme conducts research, analysis and activities focusing on Asia. Three areas are of particular interest: power relations in Asia, rising Asia and its global impact and norms and democracy in Asia. For autumn 2019 the programme is recruiting an intern who, under the supervision of programme staff, will work on these themes. We are happy to see applicants with the ambition to work analytically with the program's focus areas in the future. Applicants should have knowledge in an Asian language, political science, international relations, security policy, history, international political economy and have an interest in web and communication.
Internship with the Russia and Eurasia Programme
UI’s Russia and Eurasia Programme is recruiting an intern with a vibrant interest of the region. The intern’s interest should align with the programme’s research and focus: Russian foreign policy, the Eastern Partnership Countries (Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia) and/or in fields such as human rights, international law, security policy or economic development. Applicants should have knowledge in political science, national economy, law and/or history. Knowledge in Russian language is a merit.
