The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC), a non-governmental civil society organisation with focus on policy and legislative engagement based in Abuja, Nigeria, is seeking recent Masters’ graduates in African Studies, Development Studies or Public Policy who are interested in hands-on learning about governance and policymaking in West Africa.
CISLAC (www.cislacnigeria.org) was founded to forge links between civil society and parliamentary policymakers in Nigeria’s transitional democracy, and to strengthen the legislative oversight process in Nigeria’s Legislature both at National and State level. CISLAC has taken a lead in such activities as monitoring the budget process, scrutinising the implementation of the Nigeria Executive Industries Transparency Initiative ACT, Fiscal Responsibility Act, Freedom of Information Act and examining National rules on Public Procurement Act 2007, advocating for the mainstreaming of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Nigeria as well as many other areas of policy and legislation at a National and State level.
The intern role will involve assisting in administering programmes with partner institutions at National and State level, developing project proposals, preparing reports and information materials and helping to represent CISLAC in policy-related civil society networks. The internship will allow extensive and unique exposure to legislative and governance institutions, as well as interaction with wider civil society in Nigeria.
As part of CISLAC’s ongoing programme of providing opportunities for early-career professionals to have exposure to governance and development issues, the internship programme is open to both international and domestic candidates. Internships, which can be between three and six months, or longer if part-time, are expected to be self-funded, although a small daily allowance will be made for transport/food expenses.
Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) is a non-governmental, non-profit legislative advocacy, lobbying, information sharing and research organization. (CISLAC) works towards bridging the gap between the legislature and the electorate; by enhancing lobbying strategies; engagement of bills before their passage into law; manpower development for lawmakers, legislative aides, politicians and the civil society, as well as civic education on the tenets of democracy and Human Rights.
