Sophie von Loeben, Intern at Global Governance Institute

During my last semester, I interned with the Global Governance Institute (GGI), an independent, non-profit think tank based in Brussels.

As an International Affairs student, I believe that this is one of the best internships available to us. GGI has offered me professional experience in writing policy-oriented analyses on the subject area of my choice. Furthermore, I was able to acquire skills in the communications sector of the organisation, a field that was completely new to me. I designed the organisation’s newsletter and conducted research for the Environment and Sustainable Development section of the organisation. GGI even gave me the possibility to publish the two papers.

The combination of both policy-oriented research and working in the organisation’s communication section made this internship an invaluable experience. Overall, this internship was a great personal and professional opportunity that will play a significant role in my future career plans.
