Chance to Attend the Lubanga Trial
The Institute for War and Peace Reporting is looking for a reporter to cover the trial of Thomas Lubanga at the International Criminal Court, in the Hague, for the month of March only. There is a modest salary of 2500 euro. The person will have to write daily updates, Monday to Friday, to a tight afternoon deadline based on proceedings that day at the court. Stories are posted on www.lubangatrial.org, and in addition prepare a weekly summary and feature and analysis articles. The job ad says the candidate should be either willing to live in the Hague for one month or 'alternatively arrange access to a fast and reliable internet connection to monitor the trial live online'. Sounds like a great little job for a post-grad student in international criminal law. Candidates should send a cv and covering letter to Lisa Clifford, firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> with "Hague Trial Reporter" in the subject line.
