South Asia Human Rights Documentation Centre

Outline of the organisation

The South Asia Human Rights Documentation Centre (SAHRDC) is a network of individuals across the region. It seeks to investigate, document and disseminate information about human rights treaties and conventions, human rights education, refugees, media freedom, prison reforms, political imprisonment, torture, summary executions, disappearances and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment.

Positions available

The SAHRDC seeks interns who have a serious human rights commitment. The SAHRDC welcomes students, mid-term career professionals and lawyers looking for a sabbatical with good analytical and research aptitude.

At any point, SAHRDC has a number of ongoing projects. The SAHRDC welcomes interns willing to help in these projects. Most of these projects entail copious research work. Some of them require travel within Asia. Interns are able to assume a significant amount of responsibility. Internships are not remunerated.

Application process

To complete an application for an internship, please send a detailed CV and a writing sample. The writing sample could be a term paper of between 10-15 pages.
