The United Nations University Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS) offers students with an interest and background in regional integration studies the opportunity to take part in the activities of the Institute. Traineeships and internships are respectively intended for undergraduate and graduate students.
The duties of UNU-CRIS Interns involve:
Besides, interns are welcome to take part in seminars, workshops, conferences and other events organized by UNU-CRIS, including informal briefings and roundtable discussions.
Office space, computer facilities, and access to the libraries of UNU-CRIS, UNU, Ghent University, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, and the College of Europe are provided. While traineeships and internship are non-remunerated, travel costs incurred by attendance at UNU-CRIS related events are reimbursed.
In addition, Bruges’ favorable location close to Brussels provides direct access to the seat of the European Union and other international organizations, as well as a number of universities and research centers based in the Belgian capital.
Although admitted candidates are required to arrange their own travel, housing, and health insurance, UNU-CRIS will provide advice and support to help facilitate the search process.
