The Women, Peace and Security Programme of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) is hiring for a remote fellow to start in summer 2022 for a 4-6 month term but ideally close to New York City for any upcoming in person meetings.
The fellow will work closely with WILPF staff on monitoring, research and communications support on Women, Peace and Security issues emerging in the UN Security Council and elsewhere. The fellow will monitor UN meetings and debates and provide support for online and offline events and communications, research, and policy analysis.
This competitive fellowship is primarily aimed at individuals early in their careers who want an opportunity to research and write about women, peace and conflict issues and gain experience with a non-governmental organisation.
The fellowship requires a person with good communication skills, initiative, creativity, flexibility, a high level of organisation, an ability to work in a fast-paced environment, and commitment to WILPF’s mission, while maintaining WILPF’s high professional standards.
The fellow’s work will primarily be aligned with the working hours of New York (Eastern Time), with some flexibility in working hours to accommodate scheduling needs.
This opportunity comes with a stipend and requires a 4 day work week committment.
