Human Rights Now (HRN), an international human rights NGO based in Tokyo with UN consultative status, takes applications for internships in Tokyo, Geneva, and New York.
This internship allows college and law school students and others interested in human rights, public policy, and international affairs a chance to gain experience working directly on human rights issues at an influential international human rights NGO. Internships provide an excellent opportunity for interns to engage in research, on-site investigations, and observations of UN conferences and meetings. Persons who have legal backgrounds or experience with research or human rights work are highly encouraged to apply. Past interns have come from schools such as Colombia Law School, NYU Law School, UC Berkeley Law School, and Tokyo University and have gone on to work with organizations such as UNHCR, Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and major law firms.
We accept internship applications at Tokyo, Geneva, and New York throughout the year. Internships are unpaid.
