Why joining Science for Democracy for an internship

Science for Democracy is the best place in Bruxelles to live and breathe political action in its purest form combining analysis of evidence-based policies vis-à-vis the  Rule of Law and Right to Science. Everyone should be aware of their existence and interaction with our daily lives learning from experts, academics, former MEPs and MPs, law practitioners, and like-minded activists who work every day with  passion to make sure that their actions have a strong and concrete impact on our daily life.

If you are interested in politics, policy and – most importantly – in the democratic evolution of Global and European institutions Science for Democracy is the unique organisation where you can expand or consolidate your policy and political skills, and find an environment where critical thinking, proactiveness, and scientific and humanistic approaches can coexist trigger changes.

What is Science for Democracy and what we do

Science for Democracy is not an NGO. And it is not a political party. It is a platform launched in 2018 to promote the right to science and the right to enjoy the benefit of science, through advocacy, rights watching and public engagement. Our network of members (prominent academics and researchers) cooperate to activate the instruments of the lobby, shadow reporting, and participatory democracy to transform evidence-based policies in actual reforms of the United Nations and the European Union.

Our key areas of actions are (but are not limited to): Right to Science, Freedom of Research, Environment and Biotechnologies, Controlled Substances, Open Science, Sexual and Reproductive Health.

Science for Democracy is part of a network of organisations together with the Italian Associazione Luca Coscioni per la Libertà’ di Ricerca Scientifica and EUMANS, the European citizens’ movement which empowers European citizens to activate participatory democracy instruments for the rule of law and the sustainable development goals.

Our main activities are:

Shadow Reports
The Freedom Research Index
European Citizens Initiatives (current:
Informative and dissemination activities on the right to science
Community engagement
