The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Fundamental and Human Rights is a centre of competence for human rights work. Internationally recognised experts combine cutting-edge research with practical human rights work making the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights one of the leading Human Rights institutions in Europe. Our independent research offers facts in decision-making processes and in public debate. Through educational work for school teachers, training of members of the executive forces and the judiciary, through advocacy work for and monitoring of state institutions, our work has a sustainable and tangible effect for all parties concerned. This approach makes us unique.
Based under the program line 'General Human Rights' and in the responsibility of the Institute's Director Univ.-Prof. Dr Michael Lysander Fremuth, the trainee will support the program 'International Criminal Law & Human Rights’.

Legal and technical skills (IT) would be highly appreciated.
