Human Rights Internships in Buenos Aires

The days of the human rights abuses of Argentina’s Dirty War, when up to 30,000 people were ‘disappeared’ by the Argentinian government, are far behind us. However, judicial proceedings related to the events of this period are still continuing and remain the focus of many human rights organizations. Projects for Buenos Aires human rights interns range from on-the-ground training and support to conducting research. Buenos Aires interns may gain exposure to a range of other issues, including police brutality, judicial and political corruption, freedom of expression, human trafficking and campaigning for the rights of marginalized communities, indigenous populations, refugees, women, children and the homeless, for example. Buenos Aires human rights internship projects include a range of opportunities, from on-the-ground training and support to conducting research and working inside organizations.

Human rights interns have an array of opportunities available in the field, including international efforts and even assisting with gender advocacy campaigns. Additionally, human rights opportunities in Buenos Aires can include monitoring and evaluating community-based interventions, developing educational workshops for immigrants, observing Parliamentary hearings, promoting political transparency and carrying out human rights peer education training.
