REMOTE INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY: HUMAN RIGHTS & BUSINESS - FALL 2020

Institut for Menneskerettigheder



The remote internships are part of the Institute’s adaptation to the current covid-19 pandemic in order to support students interested in pursuing remote work to complete their education.

INTERN 1
As an intern at the Danish Institute for Human Rights’
Corporate Engagement
, you will get a good understanding of international human rights work as well as access to a network of human rights experts. Furthermore, you will be acquainted with international human rights project implementation and develop skills and competences in project management.

As our new intern you will be assigned a supervisor and will assist our corporate engagement project-teams. The remote internship will train your ability to apply theory in practice, not least via participation in the following tasks:

  • Research on
    • human rights topics related to various business sectors
    • country specific human rights and business issues
    • human rights impact assessment, grievance mechanisms and other ad-hoc human rights and business-related topics
  • Analysis and mapping of
    • company policies and procedures
    • existing initiatives or corporate ‘best practice’
  • Translation of complex human rights principles and standards to actionable recommendations for companies

To ensure sustainable global development based on human rights, we believe that the human rights community and the business community must work together. In
The Corporate Engagement Programme
we work directly with companies to help them minimize the negative and maximize the positive human rights impacts of their operations at the global, country and project level.

In case of questions about the position, please contact the programme manager, Cathrine Bloch Veiberg, cph@humanrights.dk.

INTERN 2
The

Business & Accountability
Programme
focuses on strengthening implementation of human rights in relation to business activities at the national level and supporting the development of dialogue and accountability systems at international and regional levels.

As our new intern, you will be assigned a supervisor and be a part of:

  • research on national and international legal and policy frameworks relating to business and human rights. This might include research in relation to national action plans on business and human rights, gender and business and human rights, development finance, public procurement, remedial mechanisms, the role of business in the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development etc.
  • the development of tools and guidance on human rights and business particularly targeted at state actors
  • supporting country-level projects
  • the development of materials on national human tights institutions (NHRIs)
