WIKIMEDIA HIRING DIGITAL RIGHTS AND ADVOCACY RESEARCHER

The Wikimedia/Yale Law School Initiative on Intermediaries and the Internet, part of the Information Society Project at Yale Law School, is accepting applications for a summer student for 12 weeks between the beginning of June and the end of August.

This position includes a strong advocacy focus, and will involve research and campaigning in support of global digital rights, and against policies by governments, private sector entities, and other actors that threaten freedom of expression and access to information online. This will include collaboration with international human rights organisations, as well as local partners based in the global south, so experience in civil society or working with organisations based in the developing world will be considered a significant asset, as will knowledge of international human rights law, and the ability to understand any additional languages.

Applications are welcome immediately, which will be considered on a rolling basis starting on May 7. Those interested in applying should send a copy of their CV, cover letter and law school transcripts to Michael Karanicolas at michael.karanicolas@yale.edu.
