Fellowship + Internships

Rest & Respite and Fellowships

The purpose of Front Line's Fellowship and Rest & Respite Programmes is to enable human rights defenders to take some time out and recharge their batteries in a safe environment while at the same time enhancing their skills so that they can work more effectively when they return home.

Human rights defenders can take some well-earned rest and respite and escape the stressful and difficult circumstances in which they work for a short time. They can also choose to work on a specific project, learn about digital security or improve other skills relevant to their work.

Fellowships and rest & respite are offered on an invitation only basis.


Front Line also offers some other internships which offer an opportunity to gain experience of working for an international human rights defenders organization.
