OHCHR LGBTI Fellowship 2019

The mission of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) is to work for the protection of all human rights for all people; to help empower people to realize their rights, and to assist those responsible for upholding such rights in ensuring that they are implemented.

As part of its overall work on the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (trans) and intersex people, OHCHR is piloting the creation of a new Fellowship program. In 2019, the Fellowship will be open to trans candidates. Upon completion, the experience of the 2019 Fellowship will be assessed and a decision made on the continuation/adaptation of the program.

The fellowship recognizes the stigma and discrimination faced by trans people in their lives and seeks to raise awareness and build the capacity of trans human rights defenders with regard to the UN human rights mechanisms and the international human rights law framework protecting and promoting the rights of trans people generally.

The fellowship will run for a period of 7 months and will be based in Geneva, Switzerland.

The applicant:

– Should be nominated by an organization working on the human rights of trans people;

– Should have 2 years’ experience working on the human rights of trans people / issues of human rights, gender identity and expression;

– Should be fluent in written and spoken English, which will be the language of the fellowship. Knowledge of any of the other official UN languages will be an advantage;

– Should commit to transmitting the knowledge and experience gained during the fellowship upon return to their respective organisations and/or country of residence;

– Should be at least 18 years old;

– Should obtain medical clearance before commencing their fellowship.

Other criteria include:

– Experience and skills relevant to OHCHR’s mandate, including international human rights law, are an asset;

– Experience with an organisation working on the human rights of trans people is an asset;

– Special consideration will be given to geographical diversity.

The fellow will receive a monthly stipend of around EUR 3376.57 (CHF 3,800) to cover living expenses for the duration of the fellowship. OHCHR will provide one economy class return air ticket to and from the country of residence at the start/end of the Fellowship and basic health insurance.

Please note that this is not a regular employment position within OHCHR and it does not lead to employment rights and entitlements beyond the terms of the fellowship
