Oana Popescu: Summer Internship Opportunity at GlobalFocus Center

Oana Popescu: Summer Internship Opportunity at GlobalFocus Center

Be part of a landmark project implemented
with support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and UNDP!

You’ll be joining our team for 3 months starting at the beginning 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. The position also offers the opportunity to engage in other projects carried out by GlobalFocus Center and its partners, as well as contribute articles and research to our media partner Foreign Policy Romania.

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.
The yearlong project will identify and survey public institutions, NGOs, individual experts and private companies involved in reform processes in Romania and abroad, then organise and analyse the information collected.

• If you are interested in understanding transitions, democratisation, post-confict reconstruction and state-building,
• If you wish to gain a thorough understanding of Romania’s quarter century reforms, EU and NATO accession,
• If you want to build a vast network of contacts, national and international, in sectors from security sector, public administration, economic reform, to rule of law, child protection services, minority rights etc,

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 office@global-focus.eu by June 30th, 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 3 smart, pro-active and resourceful students who should also have:
• Excellent attention to detail, organisation, time management
• Ability to be a team player, but also work independently
• Strong research, writing and communication skills
• Good command of English and Romanian
• Good end-user IT skills (Word, Excel, Web browsers)

The objectives of the internship are to:
• Gain practical work experience related to the interns’ academic interests, understand transformation processes
• Improve your writing, research and networking skills
• Get a glimpse of project management and a think-tank’s work
• Establish connections with various professionals and key experts

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
