The Budapest Centre offers a limited number of resident and non-resident internships to graduate students.

The requirements for the application and the conditions of the internships are the same as those for residential internships. The intern will work via telecommuting and report periodically to his or her supervisor either in Rome or in Budapest. In most cases, the intern will be assigned to a specific research project or to the organization of a specific event. His or her duties will be limited to the scope of that project, unless doing otherwise is strictly necessary.

– M.A. in a relevant subject.
– Working knowledge of English (Knowledge of French, Spanish, Arabic, Russian or Hungarian is an advantage);
– Computer literacy;
– Interest in human rights, genocide and mass atrocities prevention issues;
– Competence in the basic knowledge of International and Regional Organizations.

To apply:
Candidates will be asked to submit their resume and a cover letter.
If the CV suits the requirements of the Budapest Centre, future interns will be asked to submit 2 reference letters before the first interview.

Due to the amount of candidatures received only successful candidates will be contacted. We apologize for the inconvenience.
