Policy Fellows will support Accountability Counsel in promoting corporate and institutional accountability and the protection of human and environmental rights. In this context, Policy Fellows will help advance our policy work toward the improvement of accountability mechanisms and their creation where they do not currently exist. Responsibilities include: conducting research and policy analysis; producing memos; reporting on international and domestic legal/policy developments; supporting our coalition-building efforts; and assisting with the development and implementation of advocacy strategies and campaigns. Policy Fellows will participate in meetings with stakeholders in government, business, international institutions, and partner organizations, as appropriate.
Applicants are requested to have relevant work experience and/or an academic background in at least some of the areas in which we work: international law; development and economics; public policy; and environmental and human rights. Applicants are required to have excellent communication, research, writing, and critical thinking skills. Policy Fellow applicants must submit a resume and brief writing sample (no more than 5 pages, policy-oriented writing samples are preferred but other types may be submitted as well) via our online application form.
