MSc work experience opportunities

The ICCS is pleased to announce that for the 2014/15 intake we can offer the possibility of undertaking voluntary work experience with a number of organisations. Placements will be offered on a competitive basis, over the summer term for a maximum 20 days in order to allow sufficient time for the completion of the dissertation.

Alongside these organisations, the ICCS has its own work experience programme that all MSc candidates will have the opportunity to be involved with.

2014/15 opportunities:

European Leadership Network

The European Leadership Network (ELN) was originally formed to help create the conditions for a world without nuclear weapons. Over the last 30 months it has been working on that agenda through its research, events programme and active network of former European political, military, and diplomatic leaders.

The ELN carries out its work by producing and disseminating independent research and analysis, and by providing an independent platform for international dialogue and debate with a strong focus on workable and credible policy solutions. Its activities are currently structured around three areas: Global Security, Euro-Atlantic Security and the Middle East.

British American Security Information Council (BASIC)

BASIC's vision is a world free from the threat of nuclear weapons, established by a cooperative global security agenda and formalized in negotiated treaties. BASIC seeks to engage diverse perspectives and broaden the scope of the discussion to find ways past existing frustrations. The organisation has 27 years of experience building an extensive and diverse network across Europe, the US and the Middle East. BASIC has a reputation for non-partisan, non-judgmental engagement and for seeking common ground, in the interests of nuclear disarmament.

Responding to Conflict (RTC)

RTC is an independent conflict transformation organisation and a registered charity that has worked since 1991 to support people and organisations in transforming violent conflict and building lasting peace. The organisation works in partnership with others to design and coordinate long-term programmes that support local peace building initiatives and provide on-going support to our partners in the midst of conflict. RTC also provides training and skills development and a variety of consultancy services in the fields of conflict assessment, conflict transformation strategies and methodologies, facilitation and mediation, and organisational development.
