Welcome to the Centre for Pakistan and Gulf Studies (CPGS)!
CPGS is a leading non-partisan research institute on Global Security, Geo Politics, Peace Building and Conflict Resolution. The Centre aims to promote an alternative perspective in advancing the cause of peace through policy analysis and direct engagement with decision makers in government, civil society and academia; assess emerging trends at regional and global level and devise strategies for addressing possible future challenges.
A cornerstone of CPGS philosophy has always been community involvement. We at CPGS believe that young people have boundless energy, enthusiasm and promise that can be tapped for the greater good. Thus, the philosophy of the CPGS Internship Program is to help young people realize their responsibilities, and to learn and grow by offering them insight into the field of public and foreign policy.
On this page, you can learn about the various internship opportunities offered by the Centre as well as information on how to apply.
CPGS offers full and part-time internships in the fall, spring and summer for undergraduates, advanced students, and recent graduates with a degree in Humanities (International Relations, Strategic Studies, Peace and Conflict Studies and similar disciplines), who are interested in gaining practical experience in public policy, strategic studies and/or foreign affairs.
The internships last for the duration of 4-6 weeks. An intern’s duties can range from program coordination and social media management to research, editing and writing. All internships are unpaid.
