Description

Analytica is opening a call for interns in its Security Policy Program.

The Foreign and Security Policy program encompasses the activities of Analytica which deal with contemporary security issues from a traditional and non-traditional standpoint and looks into the issue of governance as an emerging phenomenon in the relationship between governing institutions and citizens.

Building on the extensive work of the Analytica community on this issue, the Foreign and Security policy program attempts to bridge differences between the concepts of security and governance and to examine the contemporary security and political challenges from the aspects of both concepts. The aim is to develop more effective, empirical, field-based strategies for major security and governance programs.

The internship duration is from 30 April 2012 – 15 August 2012, in Skopje, Macedonia.

The selected intern will be given the opportunity to work in Analytica’s vibrant Security Policy program. It is expected that the intern respects Analytica’s working hours 09 – 1700hrs Monday – Friday. Some limited flexibility over the working hours is also available.
