Please note that this is an unpaid position for students wishing to gain work experience in the NGO sector. Please only apply if you are currently registered in a university course, training or other educational programme.

Minority Rights Group (MRG) is offering internship opportunities for students who wish to join our Policy & Advocacy department. This is a great opportunity for postgraduate university students to gain work experience in a vibrant international NGO, gain university course credits, and advance their understanding of human rights advocacy, policy and research.

MRG welcomes applications from young researchers and activists that can help our team of experts develop our flagship World Directory of Minorities and Indigenous Peoples. This online resource provides an update on minorities and indigenous peoples in 226 countries worldwide. Our Directory readership is over 1 million, including community representatives, national and international policy-makers, human rights lawyers and journalists.

We invite applications from postgraduate students working in the areas of international law, politics and international relations, human rights, policy, indigenous rights and related fields.

We particularly welcome applications from candidates belonging to ethnic, religious, linguistic, sexual and gender minorities, as well as candidates with disabilities.

This is an unpaid position. Therefore, we are looking for candidates who are able to secure funding and/or will gain academic credits for their work with us. The ideal candidate will join us for a minimum of eight weeks and maximum of 12 weeks. Candidates will be expected to spend at least some of their time working with the Policy and Advocacy department at our London office.

Please write a short Statement of Interest explaining why you wish you to be an intern at MRG, and apply here.
