In the framework of the Roma in European Societies (RES) initiative of the Central European University (CEU), the European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture is offering an internship opportunity to qualified alumni of the CEU Roma Access Programs.
RES is funded over the next five years by the Velux Foundations, the Roma Education Fund, and the Open Society Foundations Roma Initiatives Office. The Romani Studies Program (RSP) is a new academic unit at CEU as of 01 August 2017, encompassing the Roma Graduate Preparation Program (RGPP), the Roma in European Societies (RES) initiative, and teaching and research by its faculty and fellows. The CEU-ERIAC Internship program provides a unique opportunity to CEU Roma graduates, who will be placed in ERIAC headquarters in Berlin and will work under the supervision of the Executive Management of ERIAC.
Following a competitive call, the first two selected applicants are Almir Huseini from Serbia and Katalin Nemeth from Hungary.
Mr. Huseini holds a master’s degree in public administration from Central European University. Additionally, he has extensive experience as a consultant, social worker, and researcher for organizations such as UNICEF, UNHCR, and the European Centre for Minority Issues.
Ms. Nemeth received a master’s degree in public administration from Central European University in 2016. Since then, she has worked as an assistant at the Roma Access Programs at Central European University and as a trainee at the Financial Mechanism Office – EEA and Norway Grants.
These interns, now part of the dynamic ERIAC team, will contribute to the development of ERIAC’s mission and support the building of ERIAC’s international hub, which strives to promote activities of hundreds of Roma organizations, intellectuals, and artists in order to form multilateral initiatives and regional alliances. Interns will also conduct research in connection to the Roma contemporary arts and culture scene in Europe.
