Do you want to join the fight for Roma equality and improve your knowledge of human rights?

The ERRC offers professional internships for Romani and non-Romani individuals every year. Work with our legal or programmes department, and be involved in a wide range of activities, depending on our needs and your interests and abilities.

ERRC interns may, for example, provide administrative support, arrange events and research missions, monitor human rights developments through desk and/or field research, draft or edit reports or legal documents, translate texts, conduct legal research and assist in preparing cases for litigation, work on advocacy or support human rights education activities.

Our former interns have gone on to work across the human rights field, at the Council of Europe, European Parliament as well as many international and national NGOs.

If you are self-motivated, able to work independently and interested in Roma issues, check the jobs section on our website and contact us.
