Verité is a highly dynamic environment: working closely with colleagues in the politics research team, I learned about Sri Lanka’s parliamentary dynamics, security structure and media landscape, among other issues, from a privileged angle. The time at Verité has truly strengthened my passion for international affairs.

LAURA ÉRSEK | STUDENTECONOMICS, UNIVERSITY OF SURREY, UK

I interned with the politics research team at Verité during the summer of 2017. Over the course of my internship I had the opportunity to assist the team on a number of primary and secondary research projects, drafted research briefs on the findings of said projects, gained insight into the methodology behind 'The Media Analysis', and carried out data analysis for Manthri.lk. All in all, the internship was a truly rewarding experience.
