IHRC has a rolling internship programme for undergraduate and graduate students in our office in London, UK.
Internships for Undergraduate and Graduate Students
Islamic Human Rights Commission is an internationally recognised research, campaign and advocacy organisation. It works in a number of fields including reporting and monitoring human rights abuses by country as well as thematically. It produces briefings, research papers and books on human rights issues. Â It also takes on casework and lobbies for policy change at the local, national, regional and international level.
Graduate interns will mainly research and monitor human rights developments in various countries, draft and / or assist in drafting reports on human rights conditions, and engage in lobbying and advocacy efforts aimed at stopping abuse and changing policy. A degree of administrative and clerical work is involved. Undergraduate internships are primarily administrative and clerical in nature, but project-work can be assigned in accordance with the student's interests and abilities e.g. research, drafting documents, translating, and helping researchers. Internships are unpaid. Internships can last between 1 - 3 months for up to four days a week.
Applicants should be highly motivated, organized and reliable, with a strong interest in the fields of IHRCâ€™s work, and commitment to the ethos of finding Islamic solutions for injustice. Computer literacy is required.
