Internship opportunity with NGO in Kosovo
Location: Prishtina, Kosovo
Deadline for application: Thursday 3rd May 12noon
Democracy for Development (D4D), a Kosovo based think tank, has offered the opportunity of an internship for a month in Kosovo for a Butler student (undergraduate or postgraduate). This is an opportunity to research and gain experience with a policy level think tank/non-government organisation that promotes democracy and development.
Democracy for Development (D4D) is based in Prishtina, the capital of Kosovo. It was formed recently by experienced and well qualified individuals who came together under the vision that democracy is a precondition for development. The founding members of D4D believe that democracy is both means and ends for development. They have tasked themselves with a mission to research and reach out to a wider community of stakeholders to make this link apparent.
Democratizing research and open dialogue is essential to economic and social development. D4D argues that democracy is a prerequisite for tackling the problems of society including development. While it cannot guarantee development; it has the potential to trigger the cycle of freedom and empower people to reach self-fulfilment and boost their productivity. Empowerment and creativity will ultimately lead to policies that stand the test of time resulting with an improvement of economic and social opportunities for all.
Interested students should submit a letter of application accompanied by their CV, to the College Secretary firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 3rd May, 12noon. The letter should explain their motivation for applying in terms of career benefit or academic plans, what they envisage their contribution to D4D will be, and how they will contribute to this important link forged between Josephine Butler College and D4D. Maximum word length: 350-400. The successful applicant will be expected to prepare a short report and organise an event upon their return, to share their experience with other students. For assistance on preparing application letters and CVs, students can contact their Mentors or Resident Tutors.
Shortlisted candidates will be invited for interview. Interviews will take place on Friday 11th May.
The successful applicant may apply for a College Bursary for assist with travel and accommodation. Deadline Friday 18th May.
