Law Programme Fellowship

ARTICLE 19 welcomes applications for an unpaid research fellowship with our Law Programme. This opportunity to work within our international team, on various aspects of international law of freedom of expression and information, is open to recent graduates, PhD students and experienced researchers or practitioners.

The fellowship should focus on the areas where ARTICLE 19 is active. The research outcomes will follow a policy-oriented, advocacy-oriented, educational or otherwise practical perspective, rather than a purely theoretical approach. On the basis of the research project, ARTICLE 19 and the candidate will agree on a work programme, a supervision process, the outcomes (publication, internal or external seminars), a weekly schedule, and the duration of the fellowship.

The selection will focus on the profile of the candidate, the quality of the project and its relationship with the Expression Agenda (ARTICLE 19's international strategy). Applications should be sent to legal@article19.org at least 6 weeks before the desired date of beginning, and should include a cover letter, a résumé (including a list of publications and interventions), a recent publication, and a research project (max. 3 pages).

ARTICLE 19 is currently not able to provide financial support to research fellows. We are also unable to provide information on possible external sources of funding, or to provide assistance for visa-related matters. We invite you to check with your university or your local Bar association for information about available sources of funding for the fellowship.

The fellows will be associated with the Law Programme, and will benefit from a desk in our London office.
