Congratulations to Mr. Guterres!

Posted on Updated on

The Fair Internship Initiative wishes to congratulate Mr. António Guterres for becoming the new United Nations Secretary-General! We count on him to do as he told us few months ago when asked about unpaid internships at the UN:

“I hope that there will be a consensus in the membership, namely the 5th committee, to look seriously into that and to create more opportunities to people from the global South […] I think this is essential for the effectiveness of the UN and the perception it has. I will be very much attentive to that

Watch the full declaration of Mr. Guterres (question starts at 55’10):
