Internationales Praktikum

Internationale Praktika ermöglichen einen Einblick in andere politische Kontexte, Kulturen und die Tätigkeiten im späteren Berufsfeld, insbesondere im Bereich der Konfliktregelungsformen. Deshalb haben wir sie zum integralen Bestandteil unseres Masterstudienprogramms gemacht. Auch wenn die Kontaktaufnahme und Organisation von unseren Studierenden selbst geleistet wird, unterstützen wir sie bei ihrer Auswahl und Einbettung in die individuellen Studienschwerpunkte. Das Praktikum sollte ungefähr zwölf Wochen dauern. Es kann auch auf unterschiedliche Praktika aufgeteilt werden.

Im Direktorium des ZfK wurde eine Sonderregelung für das Auslandspraktikum während der Corona-Pandemie beschlossen. Für den Zeitraum der Sonderregelung müssen Praktika, aus Gründen der eigenen Sicherheit und der Planungssicherheit, nicht im Ausland absolviert werden.
Diese Regelung gilt für alle Studierenden, deren Möglichkeit, das Studium in der regulären Zeit abzuschließen, sonst gefährdet ist. Die Regelung gilt für Praktika, die bis zum Ende des Wintersemesters 2022/23 angetreten werden.  Ausgenommen ist also vorerst die zukünftige Kohorte 2022/23.

Sind noch Fragen offen? Dann wenden Sie sich bitte an unsere Praktikumsbetreuerin Astrid Juckenack.

Informationen zur Förderung von Praktika finden Sie in unserer Erasmus Kurzinformation.

Praktika können in den unterschiedlichsten Arbeitsfeldern der Friedens- und Konfliktforschung absolviert werden. Dazu gehören nicht nur Menschenrechtsorganisationen, internationale Organisationen wie die UN oder Organisationen der Entwicklungszusammenarbeit (wie GIZ, AGEH, Welthungerhilfe), sondern auch Think Tanks, Consulting-Agenturen und (internationale) Unternehmen.

Verschaffen Sie sich einen kurzen Überblick und sehen Sie, wo unsere Studierenden internationale Praktika geleistet haben.
