Human Rights in Context
Building a Career in Human Rights, with Vincent Ploton
Show Notes

This is the second part of the interview with Vincent Ploton, Director of development and treaty body advocacy at the International Service for Human Rights (ISHR) in Geneva, Switzerland.

In this special bonus episode, I ask Vincent how he began his career in human rights and what advice he has for students looking to work in human rights organisations, including intergovernmental organisations like offices of the UN. We look at the true value (and cost) of Internships and explore what students should look for in choosing a Masters degree that will help to find a job in human rights.
