International Crisis Group
Outline of the organisation
The International Crisis Group (ICG) is an independent, non-profit and non-governmental organisation committed to preventing and resolving deadly conflict. The International Crisis Group builds support for the good governance and inclusive politics that enable societies to flourish. It engages directly with a range of conflict actors so as to seek and share information and encourage intelligent action for peace.
The ICG offers internship opportunities to recent undergraduate and graduate students. Internships generally last three to six months depending on the location. Internships can involve such opportunities as:
- working on research projects with field analysts in Dakar, Bishkek and Bogota;
- working with EU/UN/US advocacy teams in Brussels/New York/Washington;
- organising major events as part of the development team; or
- supporting the communications team in the Brussels headquarters.
Internships and volunteer opportunities are unpaid; however, the organisation does contribute towards costs for lunch and daily transport.
