The Oak Institute, based in Maine, is pleased to issue a call for nominations for the 2013 Oak Human Rights Fellowship. We seek a frontline human rights activist who works on the problems faced by interned or displaced persons. The activist will come from outside the United States and will take up residence at Colby College in the fall of 2013.
In this call, we are particularly looking for those human rights practitioners involved in the protection of the international legal rights and basic needs of prisoners of war, civilians detained during occupation or as the result of political violence or states of emergency, and refugees and internally displaced persons fleeing from civil violence, political repression or economic dislocation. We especially encourage applications from those who are currently or were recently involved in on-the-ground work at some level of personal risk and are in need of respite.
