Global Research Projects, Internships, and Conferences

Internship Opportunities

As part of our effort to create substantive legacies linked to recipients of EPIIC's Jean Mayer Global Citizenship Award, we have begun to develop specially designed internships and research opportunities for Institute and Tufts students. Last year, senior Kate Davenport won an EPIIC/Americans for Democratic Action internship, which will be offered again this year.

The International Crisis Group has offered the following internships and positions honoring the award to its director, Gareth Evans.

General Romeo Dallaire who is conducting research on child soldiers and Ronald Noble, Secretary-General of Interpol, are working with EPIIC on new research and internship opportunities as well. The Interpol internships will also be offered to Balfour scholars at the University.

Michael Johnstone, the current chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, who spoke for EPIIC several years ago as part of its Humanity in Action Fellowship program, is creating internships at The Hague for several EPIIC students. Sarah Berger and Ben Harburg are the first beneficiaries.

Photojournalist James Nachtwey, who covered the second war in Iraq for Time Magazine in Baghdad, has taken several interns to work directly with him in his New York studio, and Cornelio Sommaragu will take several interns for work with the International Committee for the Red Cross and with the Moral Rearmament Initiative in Europe.
