DescriptionNonviolence International is an international human rights organization with programs around the world helping people deal with oppressive and exploitative situations in nonviolent ways. In New York, we work at the United Nations focused on various issues such as disarmament and other issues relating to peace, and civil society-UN relations. Work at the United Nations usually involves working as a member of a team researching issues, developing materials and putting on presentations on those issues, attending and participating in events at the UN focused on those issues, and then reporting on those events, often with people from around the world as members of huge international coalitions of NGOs working on those various issues.
ResponsibilitiesInterns are asked to join one of six teams working on specific issues. The interns then work as a team studying the issue, preparing meeting materials, and then attending events at the UN on the issue, and then developing various written responses for various purposes from proposals to blogs to position papers to social networking about the events and the issue. Often we also volunteer at relevant events at the UN or in the community to help the work move forward.
