Application Procedure

If interested, please send your CV and cover letter to cmds[at]ceu.edu. Applicants will be interviewed, which will be followed by a data reading session.

The primary responsibility of the interns will be to assist with the research, identification and collation of SLAPP cases in Council of Europe Countries and track the developments in the CoE. The interns are required to attend weekly online meetings. The interns should have exemplary research skills as they would be critical in researching in a linguistically diverse region such as the Council of Europe.

Working closely with the research team, interns will have the opportunity to refine their research skills and further develop their understanding of SLAPP cases and their impact. Interns will gain valuable work and research experience in a fairly new and very important legal field. Interns will be credited in publications involving their work.
