OSF-SPP Global Internship Program to Support the Next Generation of Open Society Leaders
In order to deepen public policy expertise in the field of human rights and governance, the Open Society Foundations and the School of Public Policy (SPP) at Central European University announced the creation of a new internship program.
Beginning later this year, the Open Society Internship for Rights and Governance, will support 14 students from top graduate level programs to work on the intersection of public policy, advocacy, and human rights.
The internship program promises to build a dedicated alumni network that will support innovative policy making in the rights and governance fields.
“This internship reflects my longstanding commitment for seeding the next generation of leaders dedicated to building open societies.” said George Soros, founder and chairman of the Open Society Foundations.
"We are honored to co-host with OSF this crucial global initiative which exemplifies SPP's mission of 'purpose beyond power',” said Wolfgang Reinicke, founding Dean of SPP. “We welcome the first round of participants to Budapest later this month and are delighted that Kathryn Sikkink and Doug Johnson have agreed to lead the OSIRG seminar. SPP faculty Katrin Kinzelbach and Daniel Large look forward to the close interactions with the participants.”
The highly competitive program selects students from top level public policy, international affairs, and government programs at Universidad Torcuato Di Tella (Argentina), Harvard University (United States), O.P. Jindal Global University (India), Oxford University (England), Sciences Po (France) and Tsinghua University (China). Applications from students of SPP at Central European University will also be invited, starting from the second year of the program.
Students will be able to immerse themselves in the ideas and practices of open society through the six week internship, while also receiving clinical training at the Central European University School of Public Policy.
The host organizations include, India’s Human Rights Law Network, the ACLU’s Human Rights Program, the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union and Transparency International, to name but a few.
