ENVIRONMENTAL CONFLICT RESOLUTION INTERNSHIP AVAILABLE (Summer)
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Conflict Prevention and Resolution Center (CPRC) seeks a student intern interested in environmental conflict resolution. CPRC houses EPA's experts in environmental collaboration and conflict resolution and provides a range of services to EPA managers and staff, including access to professional mediators and facilitators, case intake and consultation, process design, conflict coaching, and training.
Applicants are asked to submit a resume and cover letter to indicate interest. Possible Summer 2013 projects include legal and programmatic research on co-regulator relationships, developing legal guidance for Agency neutrals, and further researching practices/factors correlated with positive outcomes in environmental mediation. If interested, applicants may also develop a project proposal (1 page) on a topic of mutual interest to work on during their internship with CPRC. Final products of recent intern projects have included: recommendations to the Agency’s Senior Dispute Resolution Official on improvements to internal collaboration, completion of thesis research on the role of values in complex water disputes, and assistance with developing and presenting new EPA training. The intern will work under the direction of CPRC staff, who will provide project feedback, involve the intern in appropriate meetings, and introduce the intern to relevant contacts and resources within EPA.
