Org. Setting and Reporting

The Office of the (COMPANY NAME) High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) is the Secretariat Department responsible for strengthening international human rights mechanisms; enhancing equality and countering discrimination; combating impunity and strengthening accountability and the rule of law; integrating human rights in development and in the economic sphere; widening the democratic space; and early warning and protection of human rights in situations of conflict, violence and insecurity.

This announcement broadcasts international internship assignments with the Human Rights Council Branch (HRCB). Located within the Human Rights Council and Treaty Mechanisms Division (HRCTMD), the Human Rights Council Branch serves as the Secretariat of the Human Rights Council (HRC). Established through the (COMPANY NAME) General Assembly resolution 60/251, the Human Rights Council is an inter-governmental body responsible for the promotion and protection of human rights around the globe with a platform to discuss thematic human rights issues and situations. In addition to the Special Procedures, that are made up of special rapporteurs, special representatives, independent experts and working groups that monitor, examine, advise and publicly report on thematic issues or human rights situations in specific countries, the Human Rights Council consists of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) mechanism, which assesses the human rights situations of all (COMPANY NAME) Member States; the Advisory Committee, which serves as the Council's "think tank" providing it with expertise and advice on thematic human rights issues; and the Complaint Procedure, which allows individuals and organizations to bring human rights violations to the attention of the Human Rights Council.

Servicing three formal sessions each year and its special sessions, the Human Rights Branch provides support to the activities of the President and the Bureau throughout the year. The Branch also provides support to the work of the Advisory Committee, the confidential Complaints Procedure, including servicing the Working Group on Communications and the Working Group on Situations and to the Consultative Group, which considers applications for Special Procedures mandates-holders positions. Comprised of the Human Rights Council Support and Coordination section and respective Expert Bodies, the Human Rights Council Branch supports informal meetings, consultations and other related activities of the Human Rights Council during the inter-sessional period and provides office-wide political and procedural advice in relation to other subsidiary bodies of the Council.

Based in Geneva, Switzerland, under the overall guidance of the Chief of the Universal Periodic Review Branch, the intern reports to the Human Rights Officer/Branch Intern Coordinator. The internship assignment shall be for an initial period of three (3) months, renewable for a combined period of six (6) months, upon further approval by the supervisor, and a scheduled commencement date during the first quarter of the coming year, ranging/starting from February 2020 to February 2021.
