PAX means peace. Together with people in conflict areas and concerned citizens worldwide, PAX works to build dignified and peaceful societies across the globe. PAX brings together people who have the courage to stand for peace. PAX works together with local peace organizations and activists in conflict areas and builds bridges between hostile groups, always adapting the work to suit the countries and regions we operate in. PAX links its work with partners on the ground in conflict areas to decision makers at the national and international level. In this way we connect local security needs to policy makers at the EU, NATO and the UN. To this end we have advocacy offices at the UN in New York and the EU in Brussels. PAX's Humanitarian Disarmament team advocates for a ban on weapons whose use cannot ensure the avoidance of killing innocent civilians, such as nuclear weapons, and autonomous weapon systems, known as Killer Robots, and on strict implementation of international prohibitions on cluster munitions and landmines. In addition, researchers investigate the effects of the arms trade and the link between conflict and the environment. The team is active in international coalitions to establish a world of human security through research, networks, lobbying and campaigning.
For our Humanitarian Disarmament Program PAX is looking to recruit a Intern/Volunteer Drones. The intern / volunteer will be part of the Drones program and the Conflict & Environment research project. In the Drones program, PAX investigates the use of armed drones which are increasingly used in conflict, and their effect on the security of people. The Conflict & Environment research project focuses on the environmental health risks caused by conflict and military activities and how to include these risks in humanitarian response. You are a focused individual with a strong hands-on mentality and attitude. This position requires the capacity to successfully operate in an evolving context by strategically linking the several research program and advocacy activities of PAX and partners in a national and international context. You will get the opportunity to deepen you knowledge on campaigning, disarmament subjects and international politics around peace and security.
