United Nations Alliance
of Civilizations launched by the Office of the Secretary-General of the United
Nations and co-sponsored by the Governments of Spain and Turkey, responds to a
broad consensus across nations, cultures and religions that all societies are
interdependent, bound together in their development and security. The Alliance
seeks to forge collective political will and to mobilize concerted action at
the institutional and civil society levels to overcome the prejudice,
misperceptions and polarization that militate against such a consensus. The
Alliance hopes to contribute to a coalescing global movement which, reflecting
the will of the vast majority of people, rejects extremism in any society.
The intern will work under the direct, overall supervision of the Chief of Cabinet and Senior Adviser.
