The EU Issue Tracker internship is a demanding and challenging paid internship opportunity for candidates having completed a Masters in EU Studies or a Masters in EU Law.


While an appropriate academic background is necessary for any professional career, much can only be understood through real work experience. With this in mind, the EU Issue Tracker Internship introduces suitably trained and educated starters to the real world of EU policy in Brussels and allows them to gain professional experience.


Under the supervision of the senior members of the Policy Team, the intern will be involved in a supporting role in research, monitoring, the preparation of policy-related material, and other work in support of the permanent team, feeding into the rigorous process that produces the consistent quality, timeliness and reliability of EU Issue Tracker.


Who can apply?

We accept applications only from candidates with a Masters in EU Law or a Masters in EU Affairs / EU Politics. Candidacies that do not meet this requirement will not be considered.
