Spring 2021 Internship, Europe & Eurasia Program
Location: Washington, D.C.
Freedom House works across the Eurasia region to support human rights defenders and civil society organizations in their quest for resilience and sustainability at the time of the most brutal assault on democracy and human rights values. Through targeted support, technical assistance, and empirical research, Freedom House and its local partners identify ways to galvanize citizens to actively defend and advance their freedoms, make informed choices about their livelihoods, support civic initiatives, and regularly contribute to the well-being and development of their communities and countries. Freedom House directly implements activities and supports partners’ work to bolster public demand for the rule of law and to strengthen civil society engagement in reform and public oversight. Freedom House also implements cross-border initiatives that provide a critical opportunity for civic groups and professionals across the region to learn from each other and jointly develop new approaches to shared challenges.

The selected candidates will be assigned to ongoing projects or the development of new initiatives and will be engaged on a range of substantive tasks, depending on country and thematic focus.
