Amnesty International Seeks Country Specialists to Promote Human Rights in EURASIA

Amnesty International works to protect people wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied. We investigate and expose abuses, educate and mobilize the public, and help transform societies to create a safer, more just world. We have received the Nobel Peace Prize for our life-saving efforts. We dare to envision a world in which every person - regardless of race, religion, gender, or ethnicity - enjoys all of the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. And we ask you to join us - to take action and stop human rights abuses wherever they occur.

AIUSA is seeking a Country Specialist who will monitor the human rights situation, campaign for a positive change, and help coordinate action strategies to stop and prevent human rights abuses in their assigned countries. Ideal candidates should have a combination of country/regional expertise, academic background in the region, relevant language abilities, and human rights activist experience. You must be willing to donate at least 10 hours per week and make a minimum two year commitment to the program. This is a U.S. based position which is unpaid, but AI-related expenses will be compensated.

Currently, we are looking for volunteers interested in joining the Eurasia Action Network who can help us raise concerns about violations of the rights to freedom of religion, expression, association, and assembly . While we have a particular need to find experts for these regions/countries, feel free to contact us if your expertise lies in some other area.

Russian Folklore Expedition

Space is still available for volunteers on three Russian folklore expeditions this summer to Siberia, Belarus and the Rostovskaya oblast Cossacks. Expeditions are led by Dr. Yelena Minyonok (folklorist with the Gprky Institute of World Literature -- RAS) and sponsored by American Friends of Russian Folklore.

Participants are fully immersed in Russian village life as they assist with recording, photographing and videotaping folk narratives, songs, dances and other traditional lore. No special training in ethnography or folklore is required. Working languages of the expeditions are English and Russian.

This is a wonderful opportunity for students and scholars with a interest in Russian language, village dynamics, folklore and ethnomusicology.

Volunteers cover the costs of their own participation. For more information see http://russianfolklorefriends.org/ or inquire at info@russianfolklorefriends.org.
