Internships at The Congressional-Executive Commission on China


Congressional-Executive Commission on China
Deadline: July 15, 2009

The Congressional-Executive Commission on China (www.cecc.gov) is offering paid internships to qualified undergraduates, graduate students, or recent graduates this coming fall in Washington, D.C. Interns must be U.S. citizens. The application deadline is July 15, 2009 for the Fall 2009 internship that runs from September to December 2009. Application instructions are attached.

CECC internships provide significant educational and professional experience for undergraduates, graduate students, or recent graduates with a background in Chinese politics, law and society, and strong Chinese language skills.

Interns work closely with the Commission and its staff on the full array of issues concerning human rights, the rule of law, and governance in China (including criminal justice, democratic governance institutions, environmental problems, religious freedom, freedom of expression, ethnic minority rights, women's rights, etc.).

Interns perform important research support tasks (often in Chinese), attend seminars, meet Members of Congress and experts from the United States and abroad, and draft Commission analyses.

Interns may also be trained to work with the Commission's Political Prisoner Database, which has been accessible by the public since its launch in November 2004 (click here to begin a search).

The CECC staff is committed to interns’ professional development, and holds regular roundtables for interns on important China-related issues.

Fall 2009 interns will be paid $10/hour. Those unable to apply for Fall 2009 internships may apply for the Spring (February-May) and Summer (June-August).

Further details are available on the Commission's Web site at http://www.cecc.gov/pages/general/employ.php.
