Would you like to work for the only human rights NGO dedicated to working globally on statelessness and the right to a nationality? The Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion (ISI) is recruiting! We are seeking a highly motivated child rights professional who is excited by the challenge of leading ISI’s programme on childhood statelessness and the child’s right to a nationality into its next ambitious phase. This Child Rights Officer position is a new role within ISI and will suit someone with child rights expertise that complements ISI’s current expertise on the child’s right to a nationality.
