Finalidade e Prioridades

Individuals committed to advancing human rights, democratic governance and justice constantly confront new and unforeseen challenges. Today, authoritarian and illiberal push-backs, entrenched inequality, the accumulation of power by transnational corporations beyond the reach of national legislation, technological innovations, as well as other developments, require us to not only question common assumptions, but also to identify new opportunities. To protect and advance human rights, democracy, as well as justice, we need fresh ideas for civil society actors and creative policy proposals for governments.

The Open Society Internship for Rights and Governance is specifically tailored to invest in promising individuals who are poised to foster and sustain open societies. We train them to contribute to a more strategic, impactful human rights practice.

The initiative combines practice, in the form of an internship, with a skills-oriented two-week seminar, to help prepare grantees for their future work. The program takes a broad definition of human rights and governance inclusive of promoting fundamental freedoms, expanding public access to information, challenging inequalities through development and rights, and advancing approaches that ensure transparency and accountability of state institutions.
