Internship Description:

The Asia division is seeking an intern to provide legal and media research assistance on Nepal and some administrative support to the New York-based Associate for three days per week from March 2008 onwards. The internship will be at least three months in duration. Scheduling is flexible.


This internship is unpaid. Students are often able to arrange academic credit, as HRW internships often offer direct exposure to the workings of an international human rights organization, close supervision by the HRW staff, interaction with other U.S. and international organizations and foreign and domestic government officials, and opportunities to attend lectures, trainings, and special events relating to human rights. Students should check with their individual academic institutions for requirements.



Applicants should be well-organized, self-motivated and reliable, with excellent attention to detail. Computer skills and experience using the Internet as a research tool are required. Applicants will have a strong knowledge of politics and human rights issues in Nepal. Proficiency in Nepali is essential. Both undergraduate and graduate students, as well as non-students, are welcome to apply. Graduate students, or those with a graduate degree in a relevant area of study or relevant work experience are especially encouraged.


How to Apply:

Please apply immediately by sending a letter of interest, resume, names or letters of reference, and a brief, unedited writing sample (no calls or email inquiries, please) to chambld@hrw.org. Please use “Nepal Internship” as the subject of your email. Only complete applications will be reviewed. It is preferred that all materials be submitted via email. If emailing is not possible, send materials (please do not split a submission between email and regular post) to:
