Organizational Setting and Reporting

The Trade, Investment and Innovation Division, Trade Policy and Facilitation Section internship is for a minimum of two months. Given the nature of work and the training given, it is preferable if candidates could organize their internship for at least 4 months, up to a maximum of 6 months. All supervisory staff have PhDs in Economics, and historically this internship attracted very high caliber candidates, who as part of this internship gained invaluable academic and applied skills.

The internship is UNPAID and full-time.

Interns work five days per week (35 hours) under the supervision of a staff member in the division or office to which they are assigned.

The Trade Policy and Facilitation Section is a busy and dynamic team within ESCAP. The section is involved in a wide variety of work which includes: research and analysis on issues related to trade, regional integration and development; providing training and capacity building on trade policy for policymakers and researchers; delivering advisory services to member governments on aspects of trade policy, including trade negotiations; organizing regional dialogues, meetings and fora. Much of our work is focused on the development needs of the region’s least developed countries and other countries with special needs.


Daily responsibilities will depend on the individual’s background and the intern’s assigned office as well as the internship period. Duties may include, but are not limited to:

Background research, literature reviews and drafting inputs on trade and trade-related issues (such as inclusive and sustainable development linkages to trade), including contributions to ESCAP publications

Support for the Asia-Pacific Research and Training Network (ARTNeT), the UN Network of Experts for Paperless Trade and Transport in Asia and the Pacific (UNNExT) and the Asia-Pacific Trade Agreement (APTA) including work to improve research dissemination by various channels (e.g. social media, webpage)
