Internship (Spring 2011)

Kosovo (Pristina)

Job description

ECMI Kosovo regularly welcomes interns for three-month periods to contribute to the ongoing operations of the organisation, implementation of project activities and development of new projects. Interns are offered the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of minority rights and interethnic relations in Kosovo, especially in relation to the building of institutions at the central and municipal level, while gaining practical experience in the NGO sector. While ECMI Kosovo will attempt to engage interns in the areas that best match their interests, interns are required to be flexible in their assignments whilst at ECMI Kosovo.


Internships at ECMI Kosovo are aimed at graduate or recent graduate students with a background in social sciences, especially law, political science and sociology. Applicants are expected to have a particular interest in the Balkans and/or human rights and must have strong written and spoken communication skills in English. Knowledge of local languages (Albanian/Serbian/Turkish/Romani) is an asset.

Please note that the internship position is unpaid (ECMI Kosovo is not in the position to cover travel or any other costs related to the internship).

How to apply

Applications are accepted by E-MAIL only. An email should be sent to to Lars Burema (burema@ecmikosovo.org) with the reference ‘Internship Programme’, accompanied by the following:

  • Letter of application specifying the applicants availability, reasons for interest in ECMI Kosovo and relevant experience;

  • An unedited writing sample in English (extract of maximum 5 pages from a research paper not edited by someone else).

Incomplete applications will not be considered.
