About the Internship

The programme of work for interns at CCG is designed to build their competence around research and policy issues related to fundamental rights, human rights and national security in the context of the internet and emerging technologies in India and in turn, raise the quality of discourse in this space. Interns’ output is intended to catalyse effective research-led policy-making and consequently informed public debate as well as in-depth academic work. CCG is looking for interns to engage in the following research work:

  • Policy work: Undertake research to contribute towards CCG’s policy engagements with various government institutions and ministries on key policy issues including data protection, artificial intelligence, open digital ecosystems, intermediary liability, online free speech, content regulation, national security, cybersecurity and internet governance.
  • Academic research and writing: CCG regularly publishes academic writing on various subjects of information law and policy such as data privacy, online speech, platform regulation, artificial intelligence, national security, cybersecurity, and internet governance. Interns will engage in conducting academic research on such issues. 
  • Research projects: CCG has various ongoing research grants and projects around data protection and privacy, online speech, platform regulation, artificial intelligence, national security, cybersecurity, algorithmic accountability, misinformation and internet governance. Interns will contribute research work towards these ongoing projects. 

Eligibility

The Centre welcomes applications for both full-time and part-time interns from 3rd, 4th and 5th-year students enrolled in recognised five-year law programs; 2nd and 3rd-year students enrolled in recognised three-year law programs and students from recognised LL.M. programs at any Indian university. 

Responsibilities

They want their interns to be active participants in building a collaborative, merit-led institution and a lasting community of highly motivated young researchers. All selected applicants will be expected to take substantial initiative, maintain the highest ethical standards in their work, and contribute to the institution’s growth and development.
