Kurdish Human Rights Project opens applications for 2007 Senior Fellowship

As part of its International Fellowship Programme, Kurdish Human Rights Project is opening applications for its 2007 Senior Fellowship. The fellowship is designated for exceptional advocates from Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Syria, or countries of the former Soviet Union with a significant Kurdish population, who have shown interest in working with international human rights mechanisms. Bringing the advocate to work in KHRP's London Headquarters for 4-6 months, the Programme facilitates an exchange of legal and professional expertise while promoting cultural understanding between advocates within the regions and internationally. The fellowship reflects KHRP's deep commitment to fostering sustainability and enhancing the development of a genuine civil society, empowering local advocates to bring about lasting change in the human rights climate across the Kurdish Regions.

The successful applicant will be a qualified lawyer and member of a Bar Association with a minimum 5 years of substantial professional experience as an advocate/ defender of human rights in the Regions. In addition a Senior Fellow should display a commitment to the principle of Universal Human Rights as set out in the UN Declaration on Human Rights and the promotion and protection of the human rights of all persons in the Kurdish regions, irrespective of race, religion, sex, political persuasion, sexual orientation or other belief or opinion. Successful candidates work with KHRP's extensive Legal Team on live cases to the European Court of Human Rights and complaints to UN and other international human rights mechanisms.

Applications close on Friday 24 August 2007.
