Open Society Internship for Rights and Governance

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Individuals committed to advancing local and global forms of human rights and justice are constantly confronting new and unforeseen challenges. This changing landscape coupled with the dynamic role of civil society actors complicates our understanding of human rights promotion. Simultaneously, information and communication technologies, freedom of movement and democratic accountability afford policy practitioners new channels through which they can increase human welfare and dignity.  These conditions require innovative policy ideas that effectively integrate theory and practice to foster and sustain open societies.

The Open Society Internship for Rights and Governance (OSIRG) is specifically tailored to invest in the next generation of leaders poised to pursue these ideas. The program takes a broad definition of human rights and governance that is inclusive of promoting fundamental freedoms, expanding public access to information, challenging inequalities through development and rights and advancing approaches to ensuring transparency and accountability in a global context.
