The UNDP Oslo Governance Centre (OGC) is UNDP’s Global Policy Centre for policy development and applied research on pressing governance issues. The centre provides advice to UNDP programs on the ground and to UN global leadership on core and emerging governance issues. We connect research, policy, and practice by leveraging key partnerships with leading research institutions and relevant communities of practice. The OGC has a particular focus on building such partnership in relevant development contexts, as well as with Nordic actors. 

As an intern at OGC you will earn an understanding of how international organisations function, gain knowledge on key and acute global governance challenges and be exposed to a group of dedicated international staff.

 General ConditionsIn accordance with the UNDP Internship policy, UNDP interns are eligible to receive a monthly stipend, with a rate that varies depending on the duty location. The stipend will be paid monthly, and part-time internship arrangements are prorated accordingly.Where an intern is financially supported by an institution, government or third party, UNDP will pay the intern the difference, if any, between the external financial support provided and the applicable UNDP stipend.Except for the stipend, all other expenses connected with the internship will be borne by the intern, sponsoring government or institutions.Interns are not considered staff members and may not represent UNDP in any official capacity.The purpose of the Internship Programme is not to lead to further employment with UNDP, but to complement an intern’s studies. Therefore, there should be no expectation of employment at the end of an internship.
