Applications call for WILPF Women, Peace and Security Fellowship 2021. The Women, Peace and Security Programme of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) offers fellowships for the period of 4-6 months through our New York City UN office. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this opportunity is remote for the foreseeable future.
Moreover, this competitive fellowship is primarily aimed at individuals early in their careers who are interested in women, peace and security issues related to disarmament and women’s human rights. The experience offers an opportunity to research and write about women, peace and conflict issues and gain experience with a non-governmental organization.
The fellow will work closely with WILPF staff on monitoring, research and communications support on Women, Peace and Security issues in New York. The fellow will monitor Security Council debates and UN events, research and draft policy analysis, and support programme communications (including email and social media).
The fellowship requires a person with good communication skills, initiative, creativity, flexibility, a high level of organization, and ability to work in a fast-paced environment, and commitment to WILPF’s mission while maintaining WILPF’s high professional standards. This opportunity carries a stipend.
The fellow should have the ability to commit to 4 full days per week with the WILPF UN office (or remotely dependent on the COVID-19 guidelines). The Programme Manager will guide the fellow’s work.
