The Atlantic Initiative is seeking an English-speaking intern for its Atlantic Community program. We believe that the transatlantic agenda is international in scope, and that Europe and North America must work together closely to solve the challenges of today's globalized
world. The Atlantic Community uses the power of the Web to help today's senior policymakers, experts and analysts collaborate with tomorrow's thinkers and leaders on the biggest problems facing the West.
