Located in Addis Ababa, the African Centre for Peace and Security Training (ACPST) is mandated to enhance the ability of practitioners to make and implement policies that improve human security in Africa primarily through short courses and workshops. The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) created the centre in 2011 with support from the Geneva Centre for Security Policy, and it offers short courses on a wide range of human security issues in either French or English to practitioners working on human security concerns in Africa.
In a bid to improve the efficiency of the centre and also pass on valuable skills in the areas of training on human security issues to young professionals, the centre seeks to recruit an intern to be based in the ISS Addis Ababa office. The intern will report to the head of the ACPST.
To be considered for the role, applicants must:
A monthly stipend will be provided. The length of the internship will be for an initial period of six months with a possibility of extension for an additional six-month period depending on the performance of the intern and availability of future funding.
Send letter of application along with a CV (including the names and addresses of three referees) to Ms Yemissrach Tadesse via firstname.lastname@example.org on/before July 31, 2013.
All the best!
