The Fellowship will start on 26August 2013 (dates may vary depending on availability of delegations) and will end on 20December 2013. The placement offices will be the European Union Delegations in Geneva and New York (one fellow for each office for the entire duration of the programme) where the fellows will assist the delegation in following the United Nations Human Rights Council and United Nations General Assembly and related bodies dealing with Human Rights.
The fellows will perform tasks as set out by their supervisors.
Tasks may include, but are not limited to, carrying out research, writing reports and evaluations on negotiations, assisting in the drafting of EU statements and resolutions, as well as participating in negotiations with EU and other countries' delegates. Some administrative tasks can be expected. Often, overtime will be required.
Overall administrative management of the Fellowship Programme is provided by EIUC.
The fellows will be entitled to the following (these entitlements have to be considered as gross amount*):
Per diem: 104 € gross (for the fellow placed in New York) or 83 € gross (for the fellow placed in Geneva);
Pre-paid flight tickets through EIUC travel’s agency for a return ticket in economy class that would not exceed 400 € travelling to Geneva and 900 € travelling to New York;
Health Insurance policies for up to 100 € per month (upon receipt of original documentation).
The per diem is to be considered ALL inclusive. No additional expenses will be reimbursed.
*The following table simulates the gross and net amounts calculated according to the current Italian taxation system. It is not to be considered as a fixed amount but should be taken for information only since the nature of taxation systems can vary from one year to another:
gross 9.800 euros, net 7.970 euros (120 days in Geneva);
gross 12.200 euros, net 9.730 euros (120 days in New York).
(Article 50, clause 1, letter c) of the Testo Unico delle Imposte sui Redditi includes among incomes considered to be similar to those of employed labor “sums paid by anyone in the form of a scholarship, check, prize or subsidy for the purposes of study or professional training, if the beneficiary is not bound by relations of regular employment to the provider of funds” (tax law in force as of 31.07.2010). The net sum paid will thus vary according to the overall tax situation of the recipient of the payment).
