The René Cassin Fellows Programme (RCFP) for the year 2013 is now open to accepting applications. RCFP provides young professionals with the knowledge, skills and contacts needed for a career in international human rights or related fields.
Beginning in January 2013, the year-long Fellowship Programme consists of monthly seminars with leading human rights lawyers, academics, politicians and religious leaders (10 in total) and culminates in an international delegation to the international human rights institutions in Strasbourg or Geneva.
Fellows are expected to participate in the majority of these meetings, and to produce a paper, presentation or project on a human rights topic of their choosing which may be selected for publication.
The RCFP is perfect for young professionals interested in increasing their knowledge of human rights and making important contacts in the international institutions that are responsible for protecting them, and who can also demonstrate academic and professional success.
The deadline to apply is 30 September 2012. For more information, visit this link:
