HUMAN RIGHTS PRACTICE

HUMAN RIGHTS PRACTICE

INTERNaction secures internship places at our partner human rights organisations. Being an intern in a local NGO can help you understand the rooting causes of human rights violations and what can be done to solve them.

INTERNATIONAL NETWORK

INTERNATIONAL NETWORK

We all, as humans, share the responsibility towards human rights protection. This is why we strive to build an international network of students and organisations committed to human rights advocacy.

ADVOCACY & ACTIVISM

ADVOCACY & ACTIVISM

Megaphone

Informing yourself about human rights violations is the first step to take a stand in activism. Check our events and blog articles to light up the advocate that is in you. 

WHY

Human rights organisations worldwide are overworked. There is an increasing number of students interested to dedicate their life to human rights protection. Yet, it appears to be very difficult to make the first step in this career path. 

80%

of students wish to get experience in human rights.

VS

less than 20%

of students could find and secure an internship in human rights.

Tons of overworked local Human Rights organisations worldwide.

 
WE ARE THE SOLUTION

It is clear that there is a gap between students and Human Rights organizations that is in need of a bridge. And this is where INTERNaction comes in. For the past two years we have been bridging the gap by securing students with legal internship spots at local Human Rights NGOs worldwide: students get experience and NGOs get the qualified help they need. And this is only the beginning of what the next generation of human rights advocates can do.

AND YOU CAN BE TOO

INTERNaction is your Human Rights network, it is now your time to do your part as young Human Rights advocate. 

Conducting an internship at a human rights NGO in the Philippines was an enriching and humbling experience to say the least. Encouraging victims of sexual abuse and sex trafficking to fight for justice through legal means and seeing the success with your own eyes was the most fulfilling part of the whole experience. I believe that the unique system of interns being able to interact with the victims of such heinous crimes increases the persons’ understanding of the psychological/mental effects of abused children, which is oftentimes forgotten.
