Operation 1325 Looking for Communications Intern

for the Spring Semester 2024

Location: Stockholm with some possibility of hybrid work

Internship period: Spring Semester 2024

The internship period covers 20 weeks full-time and is unpaid. Internship in 10 weeks is also possible after discussion.

Briefly about the internship:

Operation 1325 works to promote women’s influence in security policy and peace processes in accordance with UN Security Council Resolution 1325. We are an umbrella organization with Swedish women’s and peace organizations as members. Operation 1325 works with mutual capacity development together with women’s and peace organizations in conflict countries, above all in the Middle East. We work with peace and security actors to develop and improve methods for the implementation of Resolution 1325. We contribute to long-term local, regional and international networks to support the work of elected officials and civil society for an inclusive and sustainable peace and security. Operation 1325 carries out advocacy work towards Sweden, the EU and the UN so that women’s perspective on security permeates all peace-building work.

Operation 1325’s office currently consists of an office manager. Each semester, two students also practice in the office where one focuses more on communication work while the other works on general organizational work. As an intern with us, you get a unique insight into how Operation 1325 works for women, peace and the security agenda, as well as good practical experience of what it’s like to work with communication work at a civil society organization.
