*POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT: LIBRARY SCIENCE INTERN/ VOLUNTEER, APPLY
The Center for Liberty in the Middle East (CLIME) is now hiring library
science interns or volunteer workers. The successful candidate will work
either remotely or from our Washington, D.C. office to manage our online
human rights library in Persian and English. This is a great opportunity
to gain exposure to Middle East policymaking and research in Washington,
and to work with a network of leading human rights and democracy
activists from Washington and the broader Middle East.
CLIME is a Washington, D.C. based, non-profit initiative to support
individuals and groups in the Middle East that are working for
democratic values of liberty and tolerance. Many of these “voices of
liberty” are largely unseen and unknown, not only in the United States
and Europe but also within their own societies. They face a combination
of heavy government censorship, language barriers and a lack of
financial resources. By supporting and spreading their work, CLIME aims
to promote peaceful transitions in the region to political systems that
rest on the pillars of representative government, rule of law,
separation of powers, individual rights, economic opportunity, and
respect for ethnic, religious and political diversity.
