Seeking legal research experience? Fluent in French? Interested in human rights and health?
The Laws & Policies for Universal Access to Medicines project seeks a French-speaking research assistant to research and draft one case study of laws for universal health coverage and access to medicines in a middle-income Francophone country (eg Senegal, Tunisia, Morocco…).
Together with the supervisor, a focus country will be selected based on the project’s needs and your interests. Your role will be to conduct an independent in-depth search for relevant domestic legislation that governs the national health insurance and provides medicines for society’s worst-off. With guidance from the supervisor, you will retrieve and translate into English relevant legal provisions that conform with human rights principles.
You will gain legal research experience and develop your knowledge of the human right to health with the Global Health Law Groningen Research Center. You will directly contribute to the Centre’s project on Laws & Policies for Universal Access to Medicines in collaboration with WHO’s Department of Essential Medicines. Your research will result in a draft case study that will be peer-reviewed by experts and, pending approval, later published with full acknowledgment of your work.
This research is well suited to a law student (or person with a background in law) who is fluent in the French language. Student status is irrelevant.
The case study must be complete by the end of July 2017. Completing the case study is estimated to take 20 hours of work to be arranged as you wish. You do not need to be present in Groningen. This position is non-remunerated.
Interested researchers should send a brief email to
katrina.perehudoff gmail.com as soon as possible. Do mention any relevant experience and /or interest in this work.
