European Roma Rights Center

Organization Overview
The European Roma Rights Centre (ERRC) is a Roma-led international public interest law organization working to combat anti-Romani racism and human rights abuse of Roma through strategic litigation, research and policy development, advocacy, and human rights education. Since its establishment in 1996, the ERRC has endeavored to provide Roma with the tools necessary to combat discrimination and achieve equal access to justice, education, housing, health care, and public services. The ERRC has consultative status with the Council of Europe, as well as with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. The ERRC offers IIP placements in its legal department.

Intern Responsibilities: 

IIP interns will review research and compile it into reports for use as evidence in court and/or other advocacy initiatives.  Common subjects include school segregation, reproductive rights, police brutality, and discrimination in the child-protection system. IIP interns will also prepare materials for human rights education events which are mainly designed to empower Roma to litigate cases. Additional responsibilities will include updating the ERRC's website to reflect the litigation and other work ERRC is doing. 

Candidates with one or more European languages and who are interested in future human rights work are preferred. IIP candidates with interests in legal rights, social sciences, international relations, gender studies, political science, media, communication, and journalism are encouraged to apply.
