Do you have a nose for politics and would you like to contribute to a just and sustainable world? Then come do an internship at the Max van der Stoel Foundation! We are looking for:
28h per week for the period February 2024 to June 2024
Location: The Hague
Apply no later than Sunday 17 December
The Foundation Max van der Stoel (FMS) is an independent foreign foundation affiliated to the PvdA. We work for democratisation in countries where democracy is under pressure, and for fairer Dutch dealings with developing countries. Too often, politicians and policymakers in the Netherlands make decisions that have a negative impact on developing countries. For instance, Dutch trade, agriculture and climate policies undermine efforts for sustainable and equitable development. We must avoid giving with one hand and taking with the other.
In the partnership 'Building Change' FMS works with Partos and Woord&Daad. Together, we advocate for fair Dutch policies that do not negatively impact sustainable development in low-income countries. We speak to MPs, officials and scientists and write position papers and articles on these topics. Guiding our work are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
