The Gender Equality Research Fellowship is a new ERRC programme,
introduced in 2010. This programme will provide the opportunity for
interested individual activists working at a local level in Bulgaria,
Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Montenegro, Romania,
Serbia, Slovakia, Turkey and Ukraine to conduct research on gender
equality issues that have been neglected up to now or on issues already
researched, but looking at them through perspectives not yet explored.

The fellowship is expected to start in April/May and will last for
approximately 6 months. Fellows are expected to come to Budapest,
Hungary, for a period of 4 to 8 weeks for orientation and preparation of
the research project (which will include aspects of media and
communication, research methodology design, basic financial orientation
and human rights training as relevant) and then travel back to the
research location to conduct the research with the ongoing assistance of
the ERRC. The Fellow will work closely with ERRC’s Women’s Rights and
Equality Coordinator.

The ERRC opens a two-year legal traineeship and seeks a legal trainee to
assist in litigating Roma rights, ethnic/race discrimination and related
cases in domestic, European and international tribunals and to organise
training sessions for Central and East European lawyers in public
interest litigation strategies and techniques. 
The legal trainee programme is designed to provide young lawyers with
the training and skills needed to launch a career in litigation and
related legal advocacy on rights issues affecting Roma communities.  The
traineeship is term-limited and runs for two years.  Based in Budapest,
the trainee will work with the legal team under supervision of one or
more of its lawyers to assist in developing and implementing legal
strategy, handling selected cases, drafting amicus curiae briefs and
legal submissions to domestic and international tribunals, working with
lawyers, judges, human rights organisations and other relevant
institutions. The trainee may also be involved in legislative and policy
review and drafting, advocacy and lobbying, as well as training and
public education on legal issues. The trainee will also provide
appropriate substantive input into research reports, donor reports and
funding proposals.  In addition to the practical experience offered
through side-by-side training with ERRC legal staff, trainees may be
supported in their efforts to gain bar admission in their country of
