Cadre organisationnel

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 internship opportunities situated within the Field Operations and Technical Cooperation Division (FOTCD), the OHCHR division that coordinates the development and implementation of OHCHR’s country engagement strategies. Specifically, this internship will be situated in the National Institutions and Regional Mechanisms, and Civil Society Section (NRCS).

OHCHR's cooperation with civil society remains a strategic priority because it bolsters our shared objectives, helps to address our mutual concerns, and supports the Office’s human rights mission and initiatives. OHCHR, though NRCS is dedicated to strengthening cooperation with civil society actors and OHCHR, encourages their engagement with United Nations human rights mechanisms and is dedicated to protecting civil society space.

The Section supports the establishment and strengthening of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) and works closely with NHRIs to support them in the implementation of their broad mandates to promote and protect human rights. NHRIs perform core protection issues, such as the prevention of torture and degrading treatment, summary executions, arbitrary detention and disappearances, or the protection of human rights defenders. NHRIs also play a role in advancing all aspects of the rule of law, including with regard to the judiciary, law enforcement agencies and the correctional system. NHRIs also contribute to effective Parliaments (ideally with a Human Rights body), strong and dynamic civil society organizations, alert and responsive media, a school system with human rights education programmes at all levels and, generally, a society encouraging the objective of a universal culture of human rights. Under the general guidance of the Chief of Section, the intern reports to a Human Rights Officer within the area of assignment

Based in Geneva, Switzerland, this internship is normally offered for an initial period of three (3) months, with possibility of extension up to a total period of six (6) months, ranging/starting from January to June 2018.
