    Intern, Resilience

    Pin It


    The Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) recently launched a five-year strategic plan (FY2017/18 – 2021/22) which focuses on three complementary and interconnected strategic priorities. The Resilience Intern will support WRC to advance one of its Strategic Priorities: to inform and influence the development and implementation of resilience-based approaches in humanitarian settings to improve outcomes for women, children and youth.

    Crisis and conflict-affected populations are not uniformly impacted by shocks and stresses. Gender, racial, ethnic, and other intersectional norms impact and are impacted by the various aspects of resilience, such as perceptions of shocks and stresses, differential vulnerabilities to certain shocks and stresses, and unique resilience capacities that people of different backgrounds contribute. Humanitarian programming requires a resilience lens in order to effectively work towards sustainable and resilient households, communities and systems.

    WRC is seeking interns for 20 hours per week during the Spring 2019 academic semester and Summer 2019. The Spring 2019 internship will begin February 4th and end May 31. The Summer 2019 internship will begin June 3rd and end August 30th.

    The Resilience Intern will be based at WRC’s office in New York and will report directly to the chair of the Resilience Working Group at the WRC. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to support remote internships.


    • Expanding on initial scoping research through a comprehensive literature review and documenting the common components across existing resilience frameworks;
    • Conducting a mapping of key stakeholders, including designing and conducting key informant interviews;

    • Documenting implications for the WRC’s Internal Position Paper/Working Document on resilience-based approaches, and strategic opportunities or partnerships for the WRC to advance resilience-based approaches.


    • Increase knowledge of resilience-based and gender-transformative approaches in humanitarian settings;
    • Strengthen skills in qualitative data collection and analysis; and
    • Understand the research to action model and how research translates into advocacy among different stakeholders in humanitarian settings.
