GIA meets with the UN’s Joint Inspection Unit
Yesterday, on the 13th of June 2017, the Chair and the Professional Welfare officer of the Geneva Interns Association met with representatives from the Joint Inspection Unit of the United Nations System (JIU). The JIU is currently carrying out a review of the UN internship programmes and have extended their research out to include the the view point of interns and affiliated groups and associations. We appreciate the efforts of the JIU in engaging in this important topic, and for providing a platform on which our views can be heard.
The JIU investigations will continue running for a while as they interview other relevant stakeholders and gather more information. This will all be fed into a report with a set of recommendations.
