Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR)
Location: Copenhagen, Denmark
DIHR is a Danish independent national human rights institution, accredited in accordance with the UN Paris Principles, and has, for the last three decades, implemented programs and projects covering nearly all aspects of human rights in Denmark and in developing and transitional countries around the world. DIHR employs approximately 100 people with a multitude of backgrounds in various academic fields and covering many languages and other competencies, in an internationally oriented, committed and fairly informal but highly professionalized and dynamic work environment. DIHR works from a partnership approach, which means that all activity is designed and implemented by or in close collaboration with partner institutions, which provides IIP interns the opportunity to engage directly with other institutions. Priority areas for DIHR include justice, legal reform and rule of law; freedoms relating to civil society activity, such as association and expression; business and corporate social responsibility; equal opportunity and diversity; and research/analysis. The IIP interns will be tasked to assist staff and management in a wide field of tasks related to program and project planning and implementation, depending on needs, interests and qualifications, all related to one or thematic or geographic areas of human rights. This may include research and/or analysis e.g. in the form of baseline studies. IIP candidates should have a background/interest in human rights. Language skills in a language other than English (French, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Arabic, “Nordic”) would be an asset. Two placements have been created for International Internship Program (IIP) interns.
