Shadowing Programme at the United Nations in Vienna – application deadline 8.10.2015

Want to spend one day looking behind the scenes at the United Nations in Vienna? The Shadowing Programme taking place from 24 October to 24 November 2015, will offer students the opportunity to accompany UN employees during their working day and to gain exciting insights into the international world of the Vienna International Centre (VIC).

What does UN staff do to advance global disarmament or how do they fight drugs, human trafficking and organized crime? How is UN staff involved in the field of refugee protection or the peaceful use of outer space? How do the press and information activities in the UN work? Or are you perhaps interested to know more about what it takes to simultaneously translate at conferences in all six official UN languages, or how to edit and to print documents with a thousand pages and more?

How to participate
Interested students who are enrolled in a Masters or a PhD programme at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna are invited to apply until October 8th via e-mail to the Center for International Relations by indicating “UN Shadowing” in the subject line of the e-mail, and indicating their name, their field of study, their field of interest at UN, their telephone number and their email address.
