NGOs and International Politics: Theory and Practice:
International Peace Studies is pleased to announce that a new service-learning internship module will commence in Semester 2, 2013, providing work practice to MPhil students. The overarching theme of this module is to examine the relevance of NGOs to key international politics areas and to evaluate the role of NGOs in the light of academic literature and work placement experience. NGOs currently providing internships to our students are Frontline Defenders, Brussels and Dublin, AIFRI, Dublin, Debt Coalition of Ireland, Dublin, Healing Through Remembering, Belfast, Geneva Forum, Geneva, UN Biological Weapons Convention Implementation Support Unit, Geneva, Churches Commission on Migration Issues, Brussels).
NB: Internships are un-paid and students must bear all associated costs (for example, travel, accommodation) of internships themselves.
Intake to this module will be limited in accordance with the number of internships offered.
If demand for internships exceeds supply, selection of students for internships will be decided by staff committee, on the basis of a cv and a statement of interest. Students will indicate their desired NGOs in in order of preference. If demand for a specific NGO exceeds supply selection of students for internship with that NGO will be decided by staff committee, on the basis of a cv and a statement of interest.
