Policy Podcast Assistant Internship

Internship Code: TPNGO04

Company Description:

This is a platform for foreign policy professionals to connect, share their work, and think ‘outside the tank’ together. With content discovery tools, mentoring programs, online courses, and virtual summit hosting, this NGO is working with think tanks around the world to bring the global policy community closer together.

It’s tough to find the time to build a strong online presence on top of all the policy research academics have got to do. They don’t get enough regular opportunities to interact with other like-minded experts outside of their own think tanks, respective field, and paradigms. It’s also hard to get articles seen by the right people and make waves in their own particular policy area.

The international policy community needs a non-partisan space to share their ideas, find new partners to collaborate with, and pick up new ‘policy hacks’ from each other. They need a place to be with other policy people. That is why this organization exists.
