International organizations promote human rights in a variety of ways. The EU, the Federal Foreign Office, the Council of Europe or the UN Human Rights Council are just a few examples that offer diverse career paths. Which paths can lead into international organizations in the field of human rights after graduation? In this virtual event, practitioners and graduates of trainee programs will report on their experiences and on entry opportunities in international organizations with a focus on human rights. The event offers students of all bachelor and master programs at ZU the opportunity to get an overview of career opportunities and to ask questions.
The panel will focus on the career paths that brought Helena Boguslawska to the European External Action Service. She now works as a diplomat at the Permanent Delegation of the EU to the United Nations in Geneva, where she heads the Human Rights Section. Adam Drnovsky is an election observer at the Council of Europe and will tell us about his early career and missions. Finally, Fabian Krajewski will talk about the application process and training program at the German Federal Foreign Office to become a diplomat. He is currently working as legation counsellor in Berlin and his first mission will start in 2023.
The virtual event will be held in English. Join here.
