I currently am working as an intern with the Canadian Centre for the Responsibility to Protect (CCR2P). The first week and half of my internship has primarily been preparation for the project cycle which begins on August 14th. So far I have learned a lot about the CCR2P and it’s work with multiple different states by preventing or halting the four crimes they deal with. These crimes include war crimes, ethnic cleansing, genocide, and crimes against humanity. I have also learned about the history of the CCR2P and it’s association with the United Nations. Before I began my internship I wasn’t very interested in international affairs. Just the beginning of my internship has sparked my interest in what’s going on the world outside my city. I am very excited for the next three weeks of my internship because I know this experience will teach me a lot.
