Organization: World Federation of United Nations Associations
Closing date: 01 Feb 2019
The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) is a global nonprofit organization working for a stronger and more effective United Nations. Established in 1946, we represent and coordinate a membership of over 100 United Nations Associations and their thousands of members. We work to build a better world by strengthening and improving the United Nations, through the engagement of people who share a global mindset and support international cooperation – global citizens. Our organization has offices at the United Nations in both New York and Geneva and hosts interns in both locations. www.wfuna.org
Peacekeeping missions offer assistance, protection and security to vulnerable populations in the midst of global conflicts and chaos. However, there are an alarming number of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse cases perpetrated by some serving under the UN Flag. Actions have been taken by the UN and many Member States, both in UN operations and at the global level, to enhance peace operations by working to combat and prevent SEA and ultimately make them sustainably successful. However, significant results are still too slow to appear. WFUNA launched the “Not under the United Nations Flag” campaign in December 2017 to strengthen the implementation of those existing tools, further develop them and create new ones to achieve the complete eradication of SEA.
The Intern will provide support to the assigned Officer for the Not Under the UN Flag Campaign and any other Human Rights programs. He/she will also participate to the general tasks of the office of WFUNA in Geneva.
