Intern for ICC and death penalty campaigns

Parliamentarians for Global Action (PGA) is a network of more than 1300 parliamentarians from 142 countries around the world who use their legislative and political prerogatives for the solution of global problems and to undertake specific actions and international initiatives with the support of PGA’s secretariat. PGA works on an expanded list of global issues such as fostering democracy, conflict prevention and management, international law and human rights, population and sustainable development.
Since 1989, under the umbrella of the International Law and Human Rights Programme, the PGA Campaign for the Universality and Effectiveness of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (PGA ICC Campaign) has contributed to the ratification of 76 of 122 States Parties to the Rome Statute to the International Criminal Court (ICC). PGA is widely recognized as the parliamentary network working on international justice and the ICC.
In 2013, PGA launched its Global Parliamentary Platform for the Abolition of the Death Penalty with the goal of enhancing the impact of individual parliamentarian initiatives worldwide. This platform works for the ratification of international legal norms prohibiting the death penalty, including the Second Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the United Nations General Assembly Resolutions on the moratorium on the use of the death penalty. PGA has been recognized as the international parliamentary network relevant for the abolition of the death penalty, after gaining this official designation during the Annual Assembly of the World Coalition against the Death Penalty in 2014.
The PGA Secretariat operates from both the Headquarters in New York and the office in The Hague. PGA is a Steering Committee member of the Coalition of NGOs for the ICC.
Parliamentarians for Global Action is recruiting one French-speaking intern for its Hague-based office.
The intern will work under the supervision of the Legal Officer and the Programme Officer and with relevant staff in various tasks pertaining to the PGA’s International Law and Human Rights Programme, in particular the ICC Campaign and the Campaign on the Abolition of the Death Penalty.
The intern will be involved in administrative, logistic, and research activities, including providing support in the organization of meetings and events to be held in The Hague and worldwide.
The intern will support the team in collecting and organizing information on stakeholders and political developments in different regions of the world, and establishing and maintaining communication with PGA member parliamentarians on behalf of the PGA Secretariat. In addition, the intern will support the administration of the Campaign’s database of contacts and outreach tools.
Additionally, the intern will be involved in communications, logistic, and research activities, including providing support in the organization of meetings and events to be held in The Hague and worldwide. Most importantly, the intern will assist in organizing PGA’s next Consultative Assembly of Parliamentarians on the International Criminal Court and the Rule of Law (CAP ICC), to be held in Dakar, Senegal, in December 2016. The intern will support the team in collecting, organizing and disseminating information in connection to the CAP ICC and other projects, establishing and maintaining communication with PGA members on behalf of the PGA Secretariat. In addition, the intern will support the administration of the Campaign’s database of contacts and the coordination of PGA’s social media, website and outreach tools.

The intern will have the opportunity to establish direct substantive contact with politicians, international organisations and courts based in the Hague and human rights activists worldwide.
