Public Policy Internships in Cape Town

Cape Town is the legislative capital of South Africa, as well as being the seat of the provincial government for the Western Cape. However the opportunities for internships in public policy extend far beyond government structures and span many different sectors of activity – previous public policy interns have been involved in research, advocacy and policy development around human rights, education, environmental protection and lots more! Speak to our Cape Town team about your main areas of interest and they will link you with relevant public policy opportunities.
