Are you interested in doing a placement at the European Centre for the Responsibility to Protect?
If you are an undergraduate student at the University of Leeds, you can receive academic credit to take part in a specific research project of the Centre by enrolling to ‘FOAR2000 – Faculty of Arts Research Placement module’. This module runs for the entire academic year.
In 2017-2018, you can get involved in two different projects: Europe and the Responsibility to Protect in Africa or Europe and the Responsibility to Protect in the Middle-East
In small research teams, you will investigate the European Union’s response to emerging and existing mass atrocity situations and conflicts such as the ones in Syria, Nigeria, and the Central African Republic. The research will lead to country-specific reports that will be published on the Centre’s website. The projects will help you develop your research and analytical skills, and will deepen your knowledge of the European Union, the responsibility to protect, and international relations more generally.
