Malaysian Human Rights NGO

Advocacy and Case Work

This non-governmental organisation was established over three decades ago to monitor and advocate for the respect of human rights in Malaysia, and has established itself as one of the key human rights organisations in the country through its uncompromising and unwavering committment. It defends all aspects of human rights including: the right to trial; freedom from abuse of police powers and law enforcement agencies; freedom of expression and information; freedom of assembly and association; freedom of religion; the rights of minorities, refugees, asylum seekers, migrants and trafficked persons; and democracy.

Their current campaigns focus on: campaigning for the right to trial, the right to justice, local democracy and good governance; monitoring, documenting and researching violations of human rights in Malaysia; and providing assistance and protection to individual refugees and asylum seekers as well as campaigning for policy changes regarding their treatment by the government.

Your Role

Your role and responsibilities will be developed during the application but will ensure that you will be able to gain an in-depth understanding of Human Rights by being directly involved in the advocacy process.

Requirements

Majors: International Studies, Social Work, Law, and related degrees. Law interns in particular may find this of interest, but a legal background is not necessary.
Language: Fluent English is required. Some Malay skills would be an advantage but are not essential.
