STEPS International – Why Democracy?

Internship for Website Forum – Call for applicants

Why Democracy? is a global documentary film project designed to create a world-wide debate about democracy during two weeks of October 2007.

Ten documentaries will be screened by more than 25 broadcasters to an audience of 150 million across all continents, the largest factual broadcasting event to be staged. The films are from China, Japan, India, Pakistan, Egypt, Liberia, Bolivia, USA, Denmark and Russia.

The project aims at being a provocative exploration of democracy, but will also be itself an ‘exercise’ in democracy – the opening of a world-wide dialogue. Democracy is the most prominent system of governing in the world, but it does not always benefit everyone and is not always practiced democratically. We want to get people to say what they have experienced and what they think about democracy and civil society.

We are looking for 4 to 6 interns to create a forum for the debate, primarily online but also in civil society, working full-time out of Cape Town, South Africa, during the months of June-October 2007. The group will work together developing ideas, creating content, linking to other sites, produce live news shows, quizzes, and make contacts throughout the world. Each person will bring in skills and interests from their own particular background to add creative and critical content.

We are looking for innovative candidates, with interest and knowledge about democracy and media, who enjoy working in a creative and dynamic environment, from any part of the world. Selection will be made from a broad range of backgrounds, e.g. political science, journalism, new media.

All interns will be supplied full room and board, and additionally a modest sum of pocket money. Interns do not have to be committed during the full period, but should be able to commit to at least 2 months.

Interested applicants should send an application ASAP to:
