LANDac (The Netherlands Land Academy) and ILC (the International Land Coalition) currently offer WUR master students* research internship positions at ILC partner organizations around the world. These internship positions provide students relevant working experience and the opportunity to put their research skills to practice, while simultaneously contributing to the objectives and goals of international organizations working on land governance.

This document provides an overview of available internship positions for the WUR master students. Please note that it is currently not possible for students to travel abroad. The positions and topics still need to be transformed to desk-research, in negotiation with the involved partner organization. LANDac and ILC mainly have a liaison role – the partner organization makes the final decision to accept a student, and the student (& university supervisor) and the partner organizations together discuss the practicalities, exact content and activities of the internship. The internship positions are for 3-4 months, unless otherwise agreed with the partner organizations.
