Project Title: Countering Violent Extremism in Pakistan
Required Skills or Interests
Editing and proofreading
Countering violent extremism (CVE) refers to proactive efforts to address the conditions that enable violent extremist recruitment and radicalization. If this is an issue of interest to you, then here is the opportunity for you to assist the United States government’s work with Pakistan on violent extremism issues? U.S. Embassy Islamabad’s Office of Community Engagement is looking for an intern who can research and summarize global developments, interventions, and research in CVE, and assist in building a simple database of primary source resources on CVE interventions. The intern will search the full range of online information – media, CVE and related-field research databases, academic material, and reports from government/official sources and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), universities, and think tanks – related to regional and global CVE programs, products, best practices, and trends.
You will be part of a team of 3-4 people. While you will be working remotely, the rest of your team will be at the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan. We will have regular contact so that you remain engaged with the team. We are looking forward to having you join!
