Recruitment for the 2013 René Cassin Fellows Programme in international human rights is now open.
In its fifth year, the RCFP provides young professionals with the knowledge, skills and contacts needed for a career in international human rights or related fields.
Beginning in January 2013, the year-long Fellowship Programme consists of monthly seminars with leading human rights lawyers, academics, politicians and religious leaders (10 in total) and culminates in an international delegation to the international human rights institutions in Strasbourg or Geneva. Fellows are expected to participate in the majority of these meetings, and to produce a paper, presentation or project on a human rights topic of their choosing which may be selected for publication.
René Cassin is an organisation that uses Jewish historical experience and positive Jewish values to campaign and educate on universal human rights as articulated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The RCFP is perfect for young professionals interested in increasing their knowledge of human rights and making important contacts in the international institutions that are responsible for protecting them, and who can also demonstrate academic and professional success.
Please note that the RCFP is currently limited to those in the Greater London area. We will not be able to accomodate participants from other regions at this time.
If you are interested in learning more about the 2013 RCFP or obtaining an application please email a CV and statement of interest to Shauna.firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line “RCFP” before 30th September 2012.
