Internship at Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (The Hague)
I have been part of UNPO for almost three months. My internship has been a great and inspiring experience. During the time spent in this unique organization I have learned a lot and found everything and even more what I was looking for: a first practical and enriching experience in the field of human rights. From the first moment at UNPO I was involved in its activities. And I‘ve learned so much! Through the accomplishment of such tasks as writing an alternative human rights report to one of United Nations (UN) human rights treaty bodies, planning of the side-event at UN (Geneva), preparation of the project for the crowd-funding platform, etc., I not only deepened my knowledge in international law, but also gained and improved the skills and competencies necessary for the future career. I was impressed to have been given a lot of responsibility in a short amount of time and what made this internship a wonderful experience was the trust and the flexibility given to the interns and their work.
Furthermore, I have nothing but the highest praise for all my colleagues, who helped to create a very special work place. After this time working together we are not just colleagues, we are friends.
Finally, all of what I can say is ‘Thanks’. Thanks for the great time, great people and great experience.
