Croatia is a small and beautiful country with a vibrant community, including fully dedicated and experienced mediators (judges, lawyers, non-lawyers from many professions) working together and building new democratic institutions to better communicate and peacefully solve differences and manage conflicts and disputes. Students will observe first-hand the practice of alternative dispute resolution in an emerging democracy through daily involvement with the activities of the Center.
Any student interested in pursuing an international internship experience is welcome to apply, but preference will be given to students pursuing an interest in human rights, alternative dispute resolution, and judicial reform in Southeastern Europe.

When completing the application, this portion does not have to be extensive.
