About: The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is a unique forum where governments work together to address the economic, social and environmental challenges of globalization. The OECD’s mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. The OECD provides a forum in which governments can work together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems, and work with governments to understand what drives economic, social and environmental change. The OECD measures productivity and global flows of trade and investment, analyzes and compares data to predict future trends, and sets international standards on a wide range of things, from agriculture and tax to the safety of chemicals. IIP interns will contribute to the work of the Editorial and Corporate Content Unit in the Public Affairs and Communications Directorate. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about communications in a friendly and international environment, working closely with OECD writers and editors. The OECD publishes over 500 publications per year related to: Agriculture and Food, Development, Economics, Education, Employment, Energy, Environment, Finance and Investment, Governance, Nuclear Energy, Industry and Services, Science and Technology, Social Issues/Migration/Health, Trade,  Transport, Taxation, and Urban, Rural and Regional Development. OECD publications typically run between 60 and 300 pages, include figures and tables, and are intended for a broad audience of policy makers, academics, civil society and the interested general public. The OECD publishes in a digital-first environment: publications are structured to ensure maximum online accessibility and discoverability. They are broken up into component parts (e.g. front matter, chapters, annexes, individual figures and tables) and are published individually on the OECD iLibrary platform, in addition to the full book. OECD content is generally published in English and in French, but some reports are also published in other languages.
