Switzerland: Legal Advocacy Intern – Geneva

 FULL TIME, Servicio al Cliente  Comments Off on Switzerland: Legal Advocacy Intern – Geneva
Mar 232018

Organization: Legal Action Worldwide
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 31 Mar 2018


Legal Action Worldwide (LAW) is an independent non-profit network and think tank of lawyers who provide creative legal assistance in fragile and conflict-affected areas. Our aim is to bring legal assistance to the most vulnerable and place national lawyers at the forefront of legal change. LAW uses legal advocacy, research, advice and strategic litigation to bring about change. We have three key priority areas: addressing sexual and gender based violence, accountability of security forces and natural resource exploitation/displacement. LAW’s Advisory Council and Board are comprised of senior international lawyers who advise LAW on the development of innovative litigation and legal strategies.

Our work has received national and international media coverage and has been reported in the New York Times, the UK Times, the Guardian, Voice of America, Huffington Post, Foreign Policy and a number of UN and UK government reports. The legislation which LAW drafted to address sexual and gender based violence in Somalia was described by President Judge Vagn Joensen of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda as “the most comprehensive Bill on sexual crimes [he had] seen anywhere.” It is now with the Somali Cabinet. In May 2016, Amnesty International hosted the launch of LAW’s report “Accountability for Sexual Violence committed by Armed Men in South Sudan.” Andrew Hudson, Executive Director of Crisis Action, described the report as ‘a must read.’ LAW has also held and chaired several high level roundtables on addressing sexual violence in conflict, one of which resulted in the first public statement by Ambassador to the African Union and United Nations in Somalia admitting sexual violence by peacekeepers and that efforts must be undertaken to address it. LAW also has some ground breaking legal research underway, including a new project which seeks to re-frame female genital mutilation/cutting as a form of torture and an international crime. LAW has also partnered with the Women, Peace and Security Center at the London School of Economics where we are researching sexual exploitation and abuse by security forces as an international crime. You can read more about LAW’s work on our website here.

The Geneva office of LAW focuses on LAW’s global advocacy, fundraising and outreach with a special focus on the UN, international organisations and institutions, and Permanent Missions.
