About the Open Society Internship for Rights and Governance program

Individuals committed to advancing human rights, democratic governance and justice constantly confront new and unforeseen challenges. Today, authoritarian and illiberal push-backs, entrenched inequality, the accumulation of power by transnational corporations beyond the reach of national legislation, technological innovations, as well as other developments, require us to not only question common assumptions, but also to identify new opportunities. To protect and advance human rights, democracy, as well as justice, we need fresh ideas for civil society actors and creative policy proposals for governments.

The Open Society Internship for Rights and Governance (OSIRG) is specifically tailored to invest in promising individuals who are poised to foster and sustain open societies. OSIRG allows grantees to immerse themselves in the ideas and practice of this work by participating in an intensive clinical seminar held in Berlin, Germany. The seminar, held from 10-23 June 2019, is followed by an 8- or 12-week internship at an OSF-selected non-governmental organization. The program is fully funded.

 

Lunch will be provided.
