Be part of a landmark project implemented

with support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and UNDP!

For the first time after 25 years of democratic transformation, GlobalFocus Center is taking the lead in setting up a database mapping out Romania’s expertise in democratisation and state-building. This national inventory will then enable the transfer of this experience to other states undergoing similar transitions, from our region to the Middle East and beyond, raising Romania’s international profile and making it a more effective development assistance donor state.

If you’re a student at Bachelor or Master level in Political Studies, International Relations, European Studies, History, Psychology or Sociology, Law or Economics and wish to be a part of this important endeavor for Romania, send your CV and application in English to by the 15th of June, stating why you think it’s important for Romania to export its transition expertise (1 page max.). Please mention in the subject line “internship opportunity” followed by your full name. This will be a competitive selection process; not all applicants will be successful.

We’re looking for 6 smart, pro-active and resourceful students.

What will you be doing during the internship?

  • Conduct extensive research on key areas in democratisation / development and transformation processes (i.e. minority rights, anti-corruption policies, administrative reforms a.o.)
  • Conduct interviews and establish a network of professionals
  • Build up, maintain and constantly update the database of individual and institutional experts
  • Support the team in the planning, execution and wrap-up of conferences and other events and other administrative tasks and duties as assigned.

You’ll be part of our team for 3 months starting the 1st of July, with a flexible 6-hour programme, but if we like each other, we can gladly extend the internship for a longer period. This is an unpaid position, but at the end of the programme you will receive an official certificate and recommendations upon request.
