Crosscare Migrant Project has started a ground-breaking migrant integration initiative which involves migrants shadowing the work of TDs. The scheme is called Opening Power to Diversity (OPD) and has three core aims:

  • the promotion of ethnic diversity among politicians, the political establishment and society at large
  • the provision of a unique personal and professional experience for the participants and the variety of immediate benefits entailed in this, such as an increased and unique knowledge of, connection with and insight into the political system
  • a stronger connection, understanding and sense of relevance of the political system among people and communities of migrant background.

Crosscare Migrant Project is now looking for a suitable candidate for our Migrant Integration Internship. This is a 6 month internship for 2 days per week and will be based at our office at 1 Cathedral Street, Dublin 1.
