The UCICC offers a unique internship opportunity for students from around the world.
Over the years, we have hosted interns from Europe, Asia, North America and all over Africa. We offer internships to students who have a key interest in international criminal justice issues, and have an understanding of transitional justice, human rights, international law, international relations and/or other related fields. Internships with the UCICC generally range between 3 – 6 months to provide an opportunity to engage in field work and outreach initiatives with communities and local government officials.
Our interns are engaged in issues related to the work of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and Uganda’s International Crimes Division (ICD). The tasks assigned will depend on the UCICC’s current projects and can include: monitoring and conducting research related to the work of the ICC and ICD; assisting in the preparation of outreach activities with victims and communities; writing reports on advocacy efforts undertaken including open dialogues with community members and educational activities; attending and producing detailed reports on meetings with government officials and training sessions with media representatives.
Internships with the UCICC are unpaid. Interns are expected to cover their expenses through their own means or by seeking financial assistance from their academic institutions or applying for external fellowships and grants.
Applications to the UCICC are accepted on a rolling basis, and should be submitted two months in advance of your intended commencement date. Please include your desired dates
