Organization: The Assembly of European Regions (AER) is a network for and of regional and local politicians, addressing political concerns of a pan-European nature and fostering leadership excellence on all levels of governance. 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.

European Committee of the Regions (CoR) offers a limited number of university graduates a five-month traineeship

Organization: The Committee of the Regions is the voice of regions and cities in the European Union. The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) is the European Union's (EU) assembly of local and regional representatives that provides sub-national authorities (i.e. regions, counties, provinces, municipalities and cities) with a direct voice within the EU's institutional framework.

Established in 1994, the CoR was set up to address two main issues. First, about three quarters of EU legislation is implemented at local or regional level, so local and regional representatives needed to have a say in the development of new EU laws. Second, there were concerns about a widening gap between the public and the process of European integration; involving the elected level of government closest to the citizens was one way of closing the gap

 

Duty station: Brussels, Belgium

 

Deadline:

-from 16 February to 15 July (spring session)

-from 16 September to 15 February (autumn session)

 

Description: Each trainee is assigned to a specific department of the CoR. The nature of the work depends largely on the unit.

The aim of the traineeship within the CoR is:

-to provide a unique, first-hand experience of the workings of the CoR in particular, and of the EU institutions in general

-to acquire practical experience and knowledge of the day-to-day work of the Committee's departments

-to work in a multicultural and multilingual environment

-to put into practice knowledge acquired during studies, particularly in your areas of competence

 

Requirements: To apply for a traineeship at the CoR, a number of basic requirements must be fulfilled.

Applicants must:

-be a national of one of the Member States of the European Union or of a State which is an official candidate for accession;

-have completed at least the first cycle of a higher education course and obtained a full degree by the closing date for applications

-have a thorough knowledge of one of the official languages of the European Union and a satisfactory knowledge of another EU-working language (French or English)

 

Wage: not specified

 

Application process: Applications are exclusively submitted online via an internet application form in English, French or German. Before you start filling in the form, please make sure that you have all the required information.

-There are mandatory and optional fields to complete. It is impossible for you to submit your application unless you complete all the mandatory fields. The other fields are optional, and are intended to help the Traineeships Office to establish a more detailed profile of you.

-Please check that all the information you provide is correct. Also check your form thoroughly before submitting it.

-You can return to your application form and make changes at any time before the submission deadline. After this date, no changes are allowed.

-Once your application is submitted electronically, you will receive an acknowledgement of receipt by e-mail. With this e-mail you will receive a personal access code.

The regular Internship Programme (IP) and Enhanced Internship Programme (EIP) offer a unique learning experience of six months to recent university graduates or students who are currently specializing in areas of work relevant to IFAD's mission. Don’t miss the chance!

 

Organization: The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), a specialized agency of the United Nations, was established as an international financial institution in 1977 as one of the major outcomes of the 1974 World Food Conference. One of the most important insights emerging from the conference was that the causes of food insecurity and famine were not so much failures in food production but structural problems relating to poverty, and to the fact that the majority of the developing world's poor populations were concentrated in rural areas. IFAD is thus dedicated to eradicating rural poverty in developing countries. Seventy-five per cent of the world's poorest people - 1.4 billion women, children and men - live in rural areas and depend on agriculture and related activities for their livelihoods
