Madrid—Politics

Politics interns may work as research and administrative assistants in various political offices, such as international agencies, humanitarian and relief organizations, and non-governmental agencies (NGOs). Placements also exist in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Interns must be flexible and able to work without a great deal of detailed instruction or direct supervision. Past interns have worked on projects ranging from race relations to public health in Angola to European Union affairs. Places are also available for interns in refugee agencies. Some background in political science is helpful, but interns do not need to be Political Science majors. Students with good Spanish skills, majoring in all fields who are curious about politics, are encouraged to apply.
