The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) is the Secretariat Department responsible for strengthening international human rights mechanisms; enhancing equality and countering discrimination; combating impunity and strengthening accountability and the rule of law; integrating human rights in development and in the economic sphere; widening the democratic space; and early warning and protection of human rights in situations of conflict, violence and insecurity.

This announcement broadcasts international internship assignments with the Rule of Law, Equality and Non-Discrimination Branch (ROLENDB). Created in 2006 through the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 60/251, which established the Human Rights Council (HRC), the Rule of Law, Equality and Non-Discrimination Branch conducts policy oriented research and analysis in the areas of rule of law, equality and non-discrimination; develops manuals and guidance, information and communication tools on thematic issues, including mainstreaming of human rights and their gender dimensions internally and in inter-agency processes; provides technical support and assistance to strengthening national capacities of all stakeholders, including rights-holders; and provides expert and legal advice and support in the areas of rule of law, equality and non-discrimination, clearance to ensure conformity of OHCHR agreements with the United Nations rules, procedures and practices.

The Rule of Law, Equality and Non-Discrimination Branch comprises four entities, specifically: i) the Rule of Law and Democracy Section (ROLDS), which works to develop concepts and operational strategies to enhance democracy and provide guidance and support to democratic institutions through technical cooperation activities and partnerships with the relevant parts of the United Nations, notably the United Nations Democracy Fund, the Department of Political Affairs and the United Nations Working Group on Democracy, including legal and expert advice for OHCHR field operations and headquarters on relevant issues such as respect for participatory rights in the context of free and fair elections, draft legislation and training activities; ii) the Women's Human Rights and Gender Section (WHRGS), which works to protect and promote women's human rights by highlighting laws and policies that prohibit women from equal access to resources (land, property, and housing), economic and social practices that render women vulnerable to trafficking, including gender-based violence and other impediments to their exercising full sexual and reproductive health rights, in concert with Women human rights defenders that strive to enhance the crucial role women play peace and security and concomitant risks they face in conflict situations; iii) the Anti-Racial Discrimination Section (ARDS), which develops and supports the implementation of national action plans, policies and programmes to promote equality and to counter racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, including through the elaboration of relevant tools and the creation of a database on normative and practical means to address these phenomena; and iv) the Indigenous Peoples and Minorities Section (IPMS), which works to improve human rights protection for indigenous peoples and minorities at the international and national levels through strategies such as strengthening relevant legislation, policies and practices, as well as through undertaking capacity building activities, while promoting the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Persons Belonging to National or Ethnic, Religious and Linguistic Minorities and other key human rights standards.
