Australian Human Rights Institute internships

During their internship, students may work on research helping ensure businesses are held responsible for not selling products aided by slavery in their manufacturing; investigate areas such as athletes rights and sportswashing in global events; or monitor the human rights impacts of climate change.

The Australian Journal of Human Rights (AJHR) is a publication of the Australian Human Rights Institute. Interns will work with the editorial team of Australia's first peer-reviewed journal devoted exclusively to human rights development in Australia, the Asia-Pacific region and internationally. Interns will complete diverse tasks relating to all aspects of the production cycle, from screening submissions to identifying and liaising with reviewers, and copyediting manuscripts before they are sent to production. Read more about the journal here.
Internships with the Australian Human Rights Institute are also available to UNSW students enrolled in MDIA3007 Media and Arts Internship. Media/Communications interns assist the Institute's communications team to promote our activities and events to media, the public and those involved in human rights work.
