Interns - The Rule of Law and Immigration Detention in Europe - National Case Studies
Deadline for application: positions have meanwhile been filled (update 15/03/2013):
The Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law, is placed in the British Institute of International and Comparative Law. It is devoted to identifying rule of law issues in national, regional and international systems and seeking to analyse, establish and promote the rule of law's fundamental qualities.
The Bingham Centre is seeking a number of interns to complete national reports for its study on The Rule of Law and Immigration Detention in Europe.
Candidates should possess the necessary background and skills to complete a report in English of 30-50 pages in length on questions relating to national policy on immigration detention, e.g., issues such as who has the authority to order detention, whether detention orders must be reviewed by a judicial authority and the State's grounds for ordering detention. More details will be sent to interested candidates.
The Bingham Centre is looking for candidates who are capable of completing a report on any of the following states:
Level of education
LL.M degree in a relevant area of Law (or equivalent degree) (e.g., immigration law, European Law, human rights, public international law).
Research and drafting skills
Ability to analyse and draw conclusions in a clear and precise manner; strong ability to conduct research through electronic means and resources. Prior experience in research posts will be considered a benefit.
Proficiency in the language that is the subject of the report, and in English
The national reports should be completed by mid-April 2013. Joint authorships are welcome. Although the internships are unpaid, all authors will be acknowledged in the final report, submitted to the Nuffield Foundation, and the reports will be published on the Bingham Centre's website.
Please note: This internship must be completed at a distance, due to a current influx of interns generally.
Applications will be judged on match of skills and ability of the applicant to the work available at the time. If you reach the interview stage, you will then be invited for interview at the Institute at a mutually convenient time. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer everyone an interview, and as a result, some applications will be considered unsuccessful without progressing to the interview stage, or may be kept on file until suitable work matching the applicant's skills becomes available.
The Institute has high academic standards and expects a serious level of commitment and professionalism from its interns.
