About us

Did you know that the number of unpaid interns working at the UN has raised from 131 in 1996 to 4,018 in 2014?

The Fair Internship Initiative is a group of current and former United Nations interns and consultants advocating for higher quality and fairly remunerated internships within the United Nations System.

We believe that the UN can do more to align the working conditions of its youngest contributors to the values it stands for.
