Internship, UNHCR, Luxembourg Liaison Office

Internship at the UN Refugee Agency Luxembourg Liaison Office

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) offers assistance and protection to some 65 million people of concern (internally displaced people, refugees, returnees, stateless people, asylum-seekers and others) around the world.

The Protection Unit for Belgium and Luxembourg seeks a native French-speaking intern for a six-month full-time internship in Luxembourg starting in September 2019.

The intern should be a native French speaker, with an excellent command of written and spoken English, and preferably a Master in Law. Knowledge of German and/or Luxembourgish will be an asset. Evidence of previous experience or a strong interest in refugee matters or human rights is highly valuable.

Non-sponsored interns will receive a Food and Local Transportation Allowance, up to USD 1000 per month, payable in local currency. In cases where a sponsored intern receives funding for less than the above allowance amount, UNHCR will pay the difference between this amount and the allowance, if any.
