Organization: The Committee of the Regions is the voice of regions and cities in the European Union. The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) is the European Union's (EU) assembly of local and regional representatives that provides sub-national authorities (i.e. regions, counties, provinces, municipalities and cities) with a direct voice within the EU's institutional framework.

Established in 1994, the CoR was set up to address two main issues. First, about three quarters of EU legislation is implemented at local or regional level, so local and regional representatives needed to have a say in the development of new EU laws. Second, there were concerns about a widening gap between the public and the process of European integration; involving the elected level of government closest to the citizens was one way of closing the gap

 

Duty station: Brussels, Belgium

 

Deadline:

-from 16 February to 15 July (spring session)

-from 16 September to 15 February (autumn session)

-to provide a unique, first-hand experience of the workings of the CoR in particular, and of the EU institutions in general

-to acquire practical experience and knowledge of the day-to-day work of the Committee's departments

-to work in a multicultural and multilingual environment

-to put into practice knowledge acquired during studies, particularly in your areas of competence
