Who are we?

Fair Internship Initiative (FII) is a global advocacy network that lobbies for fair and quality internships at the UN system. The network has representation around the world, with members from diverse backgrounds who have come together in a unified movement to improve accessibility to and quality of UN internships. For this purpose, FII collects data on UN internships, disseminates information, organizes institutional and media outreach activities as well as public events, and regularly meets with representatives of Permanent Missions in Geneva and New York. Together with Intern Representatives, it follows up on reported cases of abuse and harassment. So far, FII has met with more than 70 permanent missions – and continues to do so – to gather support for the cause of fair internships in the UN.
