What do we offer?

The CHRLCG internship programme will provide successful applicants with opportunities to gain insights on the social, legal and political development of China, to liaise with groups and personnel from local as well as international communities, and to develop hands-on experience in applying international human rights mechanism in local context. Apart from specific assignments, Interns will take part in the daily routines in the office on a full time basis, 10H-18H30 on 5-day week.
