Spring 2016 Internship: Congressional-Executive Commission on China
Spring 2016 INTERNSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT
Congressional-Executive Commission on China
Deadline: November 1, 2015
The Congressional-Executive Commission on China (www.cecc.gov) is offering paid internships to qualified undergraduates, graduate students, or recent graduates this coming spring in Washington, D.C. Interns must be U.S. citizens. The application deadline is November 1, 2015 for the Spring 2016 internship that runs from January 2016 to May 2016. Spring internships are part-time; interns are expected to work from 15 to 20 hours per week. See application instructions below.
The CECC is committed to interns’ professional development. CECC internships provide significant educational and professional experience for undergraduates, graduate students, or recent graduates with a background in Chinese politics, law, and society, and strong Chinese language skills.
Interns work closely with the Commission and its staff on the full array of issues concerning human rights, the rule of law, and governance in China (including criminal justice, institutions of democratic governance, environmental issues, freedom of religion, freedom of expression, ethnic minority rights, women’s rights, etc.).
Interns perform important research support tasks (often in Chinese), attend seminars, meet Members of Congress and experts from the United States and abroad, and draft Commission analyses.

Interns may also perform research for the Commission’s Political Prisoner Database, which has been accessible by the public since its launch in November 2004 (click here to begin a search).
Spring 2016 interns will be paid $10/hour. Those unable to apply for Spring 2016 internships may apply for the Summer (June-August) or the Fall (September-December) internships. Further details are available on the Commission’s Web site at http://www.cecc.gov/about/
