As part of the LOJIQ – Les Offices jeunesse internationaux du Québec internship program, the International Federation of Coalitions for Cultural Diversity is recruiting an intern to work as a project manager. This internship will take place from April 26 to July 16, 2021, at a rate of 35 hours per week.

Internship Environment

The International Federation of Coalitions for Cultural Diversity (IFCCD) is dedicated to coordinating civil society efforts to implement the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.

Mission

The intern will be responsible for writing a report on civil society participation in the promotion and protection of the diversity of cultural expressions in Asia for the IFCCD. This report is to guide the organization in determining the role that the IFCCD can play in the region to meet the needs of civil society. While part of the project will be based on document analysis, it will primarily be a survey of individuals identified as part of this project. The successful candidate will be required to speak directly with several individuals from different cultures to conduct the survey.
