MPhil students complete Al Quds University Human Rights Clinic Internship in Palestine

In May/June, MPhil students Alison Lira and Sian Donkers took up internships in Palestine at the Al Quds University Human Rights Clinic in the Old City of Jerusalem. Both Alison and Sian overcame stiff competition to be awarded the internship opportunity.

The internship programme, established by Dr Brendan CiarĂ¡n Browne and cemented through the signing of an international MOU (the first of its kind between TCD and a Palestinian organisation) is now into its fourth year and is facilitated by Dr Browne's colleagues in Palestine, Dr Munir Nuseibah (director of the legal clinic), and Mr. Osama Al Risheq. Their work involved documenting human rights abuses against Palestinians in the greater Jerusalem area, including conducting research on a proposed cable car through the Old City and the ongoing issues pertaining to collective punishment. Applications for the 2019/20 internships will be accepted in due course.
