EMI's Global Internship Program is open to graduating and post-graduate students around the world who are currently enrolled in master's or doctorate programs and who would like to get hands on experience in urban risk reduction. In the past, EMI has received master's students from Kobe University in Japan and the International University of Catalunya in Spain. We are currently hosting two interns from SciencesPo in France. Selected young professionals are provided the opportunity to get involved in its various programs covering key urban risk reduction practices such as emergency management, risk sensitive land use planning, risk governance and policy, slums shelter and housing resilience, social participation and protection, vulnerability and risk assessment, knowledge management, GIS, and capacity building.
EMI's Global Internship Program enriches the learning experience of graduating students with actual engagements in its different projects. Through this process, interns will get the chance to contribute to development of tools, conduct assessments, provide inputs to reports, write proposals, do field work, and interact with other scientists, experts, practitioners and local officials. EMI is a laboratory for testing assumptions, exchanging knowledge, and developing practical solutions and products that address the risks faced by complex cities and metropolises around the world. It is a unique experience that EMI provides with its dynamic and young Secretariat team as well as its global network of experts.
