About Tony Blair Institute for Global Change:

Each internship is different and set for a period of 8 weeks. Please only apply if you are available for the duration of July and August 2019.  

Interviews will be scheduled in the first two weeks of December. You will be contacted via email if you are successful. 

 
At the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change we are dedicated to making globalisation work for the many, not the few. We do this by helping countries, their people and their governments, address some of the most difficult challenges in the world today – beginning with those where we think we can break new ground, offering leaders new thinking and new approaches. Our staff – over 200 of them, based all over the world – are working on some of the most intractable problems around issues of co-existence, governance, the peace process in the Middle East and renewing the centre.
Focus of the Role:
The Co-existence pillar focusses on responses to extremism that first seek to understand the underlying ideology through our research and then address it by disrupting its spread, reducing its appeal, and building resilience to its messaging through our programmatic work. The pillar’s monitoring and evaluation strategy is about providing robust and credible evidence that our approach to countering and preventing violent extremism works and has meaningful impact. It is fundamental to making sure our resources achieve the greatest effect and contribute towards the global evidence base of what works. Our approach to M&E is based on the principles of local ownership, stakeholder engagement, proportionality and flexibility.
 

The TBI Co-existence Programmes Team is seeking a summer intern for the role of Junior Researcher to support the Monitoring and Evaluation team on qualitative and quantitative research and analysis of the trends and dynamics of radicalisation and extremism. The successful applicant will be responsible for conducting desk-based research on the drivers of extremism; collecting, processing and analysing primary qualitative and quantitative data in line with each project’s M&E plan and to inform development of evaluation methodologies for current and future programming that helps address evidence gaps in the CVE/PVE field.
