Internships at the UN Assistance to the Khmer Rouge Trials

The Khmer Rouge is the name that was given to the totalitarian party that ruled Cambodia from 1975-1979. The Khmer Rouge is remembered for nothing, but the brutal executions and torture of as many as two million Cambodian citizens. The brutal and arbitrary executions by the organization have been ruled as genocide. Hence, it is no secret that the surviving top leaders of the organization are now on trial (more than 30 years since the regime fell) at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) - a domestic court supported with international staff, for the crimes and violations of Cambodian law, international humanitarian law and international conventions to which Cambodia is a party.

The United Nations Assistance to the Khmer Rouge Trials (UNAKRT) provides technical assistance to the ECCC and it's seeking interns to work in the environment of this tribunal. Applicants are required to have completed a relevant first degree or be enrolled in a relevant postgraduate programme. Relevant experience in human rights law or international criminal law is an asset for prospective candidates. Am I eligible to apply? YES! Are you?

Good luck!
