The Universal Rights Group (URG) New York is looking for a dynamic individual with a passion for human rights, as well as knowledge of international relations, and research and writing skills.

This will be a full-time (four days per week), four month (January-April) volunteer internship that will take place remotely due to COVID-19.

The intern will also have the opportunity to publish a blog post on an area of interest in human rights on URG’s website. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis; the start date will be January 4 2021.
