Description: CIPE supports the positive role that the private sector can play in fragile and conflict-affected states, as well as environments rife with corruption. This internship provides an opportunity to explore the role of the private sector in emerging democracies with attention to anti-corruption and conflict/post-conflict initiatives. Specifically, the intern will support two separate CIPE staff working groups: the Conflict and Anti-Corruption/Value Chains Task Forces. Undergraduate (rising junior or above preferred), graduate, or law students demonstrating interest in the positive role that the private sector can play in fragile and conflict-affected states are encouraged to apply.
Reports to: Anti-Corruption/Value Chains Task Force and Conflict Task Force Leaders

- Attend events of interest in the Washington, D.C. areas.
- Assist with logistics of events organized by CIPE’s Conflict or Value Chains Task Forces.
