In 2015, David Hyde, an unpaid United Nations intern, was unable to complete his internship programme because he couldn’t afford Geneva’s high rents. He ended up living in a tent on the street. 67% of all unpaid UN interns come from high-income countries. Albert Barseghyan is of the Fair Internship Initiative– an independent youth-led initiative that focuses on advocating for quality and accessible internships. He speaks about the network’s small but successful progress in bringing change to internship reforms inside the UN.
