Stage posté(e) par German Marshall Fund of the United States
Publié le : 30 janv. 2013
The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) strengthens transatlantic cooperation on regional, national, and global challenges and opportunities in the spirit of the Marshall Plan.
GMF does this by supporting individuals and institutions working in the transatlantic sphere, by convening leaders and members of the policy and business communities, by contributing research and analysis on transatlantic topics, and by providing exchange opportunities to foster renewed commitment to the transatlantic relationship.
In addition, GMF supports a number of initiatives to strengthen democracies. Founded in 1972 as a non-partisan, non-profit organization through a gift from Germany as a permanent memorial to Marshall Plan assistance, GMF maintains a strong presence on both sides of the Atlantic. In addition to its headquarters in Washington, DC, GMF has offices in Berlin, Paris, Brussels, Belgrade, Ankara, Bucharest, Warsaw, and Tunis. GMF also has smaller representations in Bratislava, Turin, and Stockholm.
This position will work with GMF's EuroFuture project. GMF's EuroFuture Project aims to understand and explore the economic, governance and geostrategic dimensions of the Euro crisis from a transatlantic perspective. The Project addresses the impact, implications, and ripple effects of the crisis – in Europe, for the United States and the world. GMF does this through a combination of initiatives on both sides of the Atlantic, including large and small convening, regional seminars, study tours, paper series, polling, briefings, and media interviews. The Project also integrates its work on the Euro crisis into several of GMF's existing programs. The Project is led by Thomas Kleine-Brockhoff, Senior Transatlantic Fellow and Senior Director for Strategy. The group of GMF experts involved in the project consists of several Transatlantic Fellows as well as program staff on both sides of the Atlantic.
The intern will report to the Senior Transatlantic Fellow & Senior Director for Strategy as well as the Transatlantic Fellow, Economic Policy and will interact with other members of staff, interns for other programs/projects and Fellows. S/he will conduct research and provide administrative support for the EuroFuture project and our work on economics related issues. The intern will also have the opportunity to participate in policy meetings at both GMF and external organizations, and may be asked to summarize key points for the program team. This internship is unpaid but offers an ideal opportunity to acquire substantive professional experience for those interested in a career in public policy or international affairs.
