Program in Human Rights and Justice

The MIT Program on Human Rights and Justice (PHRJ), is a collaborative effort between the Center for International Studies and the Department of Urban Studies and Planning. The MIT Program on Human Rights and Justice (PHRJ) offers fully-funded summer internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students at MIT. The internships, usually between 8 and 12 weeks, can be arranged with non-governmental or inter-governmental organizations, social movements, or business organizations concerned with issues related to human rights, justice and sustainable development, broadly conceived. The organizations may range from those dealing with human rights through advocacy and policy (such as Human Rights Watch or Physicians for Human Rights) to those engaging in direct action to change human rights conditions at the grass roots level (such as the Asian Coalition for Housing Rights). The purpose of the internships is to provide MIT students the opportunity to study human rights issues first-hand at the field level or through applied research.
