Internship in international environmental law with the Aarhus Convention secretariat, United Nations, Geneva - Deadline for applications 12 Jan 2017




the secretariat to the Aarhus Convention offers internships to graduate or post-graduate students in law. We are currently seeking an intern for the period 12 March to 10 August 2018.

During their internship, interns have the opportunity to apply their legal skills in the UN context, working closely with officers in the secretariat and gaining hands-on experience in many aspects of servicing a high profile international environmental treaty. A notable component of the internship is the opportunity to support the work of the Aarhus Convention's innovative Compliance Committee, an international committee that hears cases brought by members of the public and governments seeking to ensure the Convention's rights are upheld.

Interested candidates should:
-        be presently undertaking, or have recently completed, a law degree, preferably including international and/or environmental law
-        be fluent in written and spoken English. Fluency in Russian and/or French is desirable.

Se ofrece:

the Aarhus Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters is the only international legally binding instrument that gives the public broad and concrete rights to participate in decision-making and to have access to information and justice regarding the environment. In doing so, the Convention links environmental and human rights and aims to protect the rights of both present and future generations to live in a healthy environment.

As Ban Ki-Moon, former Secretary General of the United Nations, has said: "The Aarhus Convention remains the most ambitious venture in the field of environmental democracy under the auspices of the United Nations...The Aarhus Convention's twin protections for environmental and human rights, and its focus on involving the public, provide a mechanism for holding governments to account in their efforts to address the multi-dimensional challenges facing our world today, including climate change, poverty reduction, and air and water pollution."  The Aarhus Convention currently has 47 Parties from Western Europe to Central Asia and is open globally. More information on the Aarhus Convention is available at http://www.unece.org/env/pp/welcome.html
