Internship: Delegation of the European Union to the United Nations in NewYork / USA August 2012


The Delegation of the European Union to the United Nations in New York, offers three internship sessions per year.

The program, which is highly selective, offers interns the opportunity to follow the activities of the Delegation in UN bodies such as the Security Council, General Assembly and its various committees.

Please note internships are voluntary (unpaid), and interns will be required to work full-time (35-40 hours per week) during their internship period.

Only applicants who fulfil the following criteria will be considered.

Prospective interns must
hold a valid passport from one of the 27 EU Member States
have completed minimum three years of university-level courses preferably in political science, economics, development studies, environment studies, human rights/humanitarian law
