Other similar opportunites in International Organisations

 

Organization: UNHCR - United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, is one of the more embedded UN Agencies, directly involved in rescue and emergency operations all over the world. 

n 1954, UNHCR won the Nobel Peace Prize for its groundbreaking work in Europe. But it was not long before we faced our next major emergency. In 1956, during the Hungarian Revolution, 200,000 fled to neighbouring Austria. Recognising the Hungarians as 'prima facie' refugees, UNHCR led efforts to resettle them. This uprising and its aftermath shaped the way humanitarian organisations would deal with refugee crises in the future. During the 1960s, the decolonisation of Africa produced the first of that continent's numerous refugee crises. We also helped uprooted people in Asia and Latin America over the following two decades. In 1981, we received a second Nobel Peace Prize for what had become worldwide assistance to refugees.  The start of the 21st century has seen UNHCR help with major refugee crises in Africa , the Middle East and Asia. We have also been asked to use our expertise to help many internally displaced by conflict and expanded our role in helping stateless peaple. In some parts of the world, such as Africa and Latin America, the 1951 Refugee Convention has been strengthened by additional regional legal instruments. UNHCR now has more than 10,966 members of staff. We work in a total of 130 countries and our budget, which in its first year was USD $300,000, grew to USD $6.54 billion in 2016.

In 2015, UNHCR celebrated 65th anniversary. During lifetime, we have helped well over 50 million refugees to successfully restart their lives.

ECIPE is rooted in the classical tradition of free trade and an open world economic order. Progressive reduction of barriers to the movement of goods, services, capital and people across borders creates prosperity, and improves the conditions for peace, security and individual freedom.

ECIPE’s intention is to subject international economic policy, particularly in Europe, to rigorous scrutiny of costs and benefits, and to present conclusions in a concise, readily accessible form to the European public. We aim to foster a “culture of evaluation” – largely lacking in Europe – so that better public awareness and understanding of complex issues in concrete situations can lead to intelligent discussion and improved policies. That will be ECIPE’s contribution to a thriving Europe in an open world.

It was formed 30 years ago, in a radically different world indeed. The founding regions met in Louvaine-la-Neuve on 14.15 June 1985 and created the AER, which at the beginning was called CRE/CER (Conseil des Régions d’Europe / Council of European Regions). The politicians strongly favouring the concept of regionalism as well as fervent Europeans, representing 47 Regions, decided to found the Assembly of European Regions. They were joined by 9 interregional organisations, seeking the support of a larger political entity. In 1986, the Council of Europe honoured AER’s status as a fundamental European organisation representing regions. The aim of the organization is to provide services for better decision-making and provide visibility, putting regions on the map. The organization embraces globalisation, beyond Europe, and acknowledge the need of diversity, inclusion and a multi-cultural approach in search of solutions. The perspective of regional policy making is grounded in the territories, cultures, histories and lives of the citizens.

The year 1985 was proclaimed by the United Nations as the International Youth Year. The same year AER launched its first programme, Eurodyssey, designed to promote and encourage youth mobility.

The World Youth Alliance (WYA) is offering different internships at the Headquarter and at its Regional Offices to promote human dignity. Choose the best for you!

 

For more opportunities go to International Organizations

 

Organization: The World Youth Alliance (WYA) began in 1999 when 21-year-old Anna Halpine stood up for human dignity during a conference at the United Nations. Since then, WYA has grown to include tens of thousands of members around the world with six regional offices, all dedicated to the defense of the dignity of the person through education, culture, and advocacy. While observing the 1999 Conference on Population and Development, Anna Halpine witnessed a group of thirty two young people make a statement. Claiming to represent all three billion of the world’s youth, they demanded that the following policies be put into place: abortion as a human right, sexual rights for children and the deletion of parental rights.
The group of young people characterized these as necessary for development, but ignored basic needs such as clean water, education, and employment. This spurred Anna to action. The next morning, she returned to the Commission with a few others and distributed bright pink flyers offering a more holistic view of the human person and human needs.With human dignity as her focus, Anna called on delegates to discuss topics addressing basic human needs and rights. Her statement was so well-received by delegations that she was asked to maintain a permanent presence at the United Nations and work with youth from developing countries. Today, WYA works at international institutions such as the United Nations, the European Union, and the Organization of American States, as well as with young people from around the world to build a culture that supports and nurtures the dignity of each human person. The organization brings young people to international conferences and into dialogue with ambassadors, diplomats, and political leaders, focusing on international policy and human rights, economic development, social development, global health and education.
