WILPF WOMEN, PEACE AND SECURITY FELLOWSHIPS

Apply for a WILPF Women, Peace and Security Fellowship

Description

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).

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 organisation.

The fellowship requires a person with good communication skills, initiative, creativity, flexibility, a high level of organisation, an 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.

Opportunities

WILPF generally hires fellows to join the NY WPS team during three different periods annually: January-May, May-August, and September-December. We accept rolling applications for all of these periods and typically review applications a month and a half in advance.

**We will next be hiring for an fellow to start in summer 2021 for a remote position**

Qualifications

As a feminist, anti-militarist membership organisation, WILPF is dedicated to building a global movement in the pursuit of peace and the fulfilment of human rights. We welcome applications from people of colour, feminists from the Global South, LGBTQI+ people, individuals from conflict-affected and diaspora communities, and people with disabilities. We believe that experience comes in many different forms, and also encourage individuals who may not meet all of the listed qualifications to apply if they feel that they would be a good fit for the fellowship.

Expectations

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 fellow’s work will be guided by the Programme Manager.
