SEEDIG is a sub-regional Internet Governance Forum (IGF) initiative dedicated to open, inclusive, and informal dialogue on Internet governance issues among interested stakeholders from South Eastern Europe and the neighbouring area. The initiative functions as a process that includes an annual meeting, as well as intersessional activities.
Preparations are now underway for SEEDIG’s third annual meeting, which will be held on 24–25 May, in Ohrid, The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. In parallel, intersessional activities include a monthly summary of Internet governance and digital policy developments in the region, and monthly briefings that gather stakeholders from the region to discuss the developments.
The SEEDIG initiative’s conveners are looking for highly motivated interns to assist with this work. Do you have what it takes?
In order to be considered for the internship, a candidate must meet the following requirements:
- Originally from, or residing in a country in South Eastern Europe or the neighbouring area.
- Knowledge of and interest in Internet governance and digital policy.
- Familiarity with Internet governance processes, in general, and IGF initiatives, in particular.
- A very good level of English.
- Availability to work 8-10 hours/week.
Selected interns will work online, under the supervision of a member of the SEEDIG executive committee. They will be required to contribute mostly to activities related to the planning of the Ohrid meeting, as well as to the preparation of the monthly summaries.
Interns will not be remunerated, but they will be provided with travel and accommodation support to attend the 2017 SEEDIG meeting.
The initial internship is offered for a period of two months, with the possibility of extension.
