The DME Intern will gain practical experience as part of a creative DME unit, building skills in research, writing, design, implementation, and analysis of qualitative and quantitative evaluation. The intern will help develop new ways to collect evidence of ICTJ`s impact and support the design of transitional justice programs in challenging contexts all over the world. The intern will receive training, guidance, and supervision from ICTJ’s Senior Design Monitoring and Evaluation Expert while working with an array of design evaluation and monitoring methodologies. These include various types of surveys, outcome harvesting and mapping, adaptive programming, traditional log frames, rights based approach, and more.

The ideal candidate will have a passion for promoting social justice in diverse contexts and a strong interest in evidence-based human rights, peacebuilding and development work. The candidate will have excellent research and writing skills, as well as solid foundations in design, monitoring and evaluation methods. Superior command of Excel, Google sheets or similar required. Proficiency in Arabic is a plus, as are skills using design and visualization tools for communication of results.


Interns are encouraged to attend all ICTJ public events, open meetings, and other local human rights-related events to foster their understanding of current trends in transitional justice.
