Project Description

In this project, VSFS interns will analyze Portuguese and English news reports for key political and economic events and produce daily summaries of interest to policymakers. Interns without Portuguese language skills can utilize online translation sites (i.e. Google Translate) to track Portuguese media reporting. Selectees will work with Political and Economic Officers assigned to U.S. Embassy, Lisbon to identify key issues that may be of interest to policymakers and write reports on related events. Specific areas may include foreign relations, politics, European Union affairs, human rights, energy, macroeconomics, finance, environment, science, and technology issues. This internship provides a unique opportunity to gain diplomatic reporting and writing experience while learning about a key ally of the United States in Europe.
