Internship Opportunity with WITNESS

WITNESS uses video to open the eyes of the world to human rights violations and empowers people to transform personal stories of abuse into powerful tools for justice, promoting public engagement and policy change.

We are currently looking for an intern for our Systems Change Initiative which focuses on addressing the challenges and opportunities for human rights work that is presented by ubiquitous video. This includes the role that technology companies play in supporting or hindering human rights values, human rights usages of visual media technologies, and the use of citizen media as documentation and evidence in the international human rights and justice systems.

The intern will participate in research, outreach, communications and blogging on current issues at the intersection of technology, human rights law and practice and they will have the opportunity to work with the Program Director and gain valuable experience in NGO management and organizational support.

We also have other internship opportunities listed on our website – witness.org – Such as digital engagement and development roles that also might be of interest.
