Twenty Days of Interns: Kraig Smikel

This summer, 20 Center for Global Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law interns are spread across four states and ten countries, going not only with the Gospel, but also with legal training and a passion to see the Lord’s justice carried out on a fallen earth.
Kraig interned with Advocates International Europe’s Rule of Law Institute in Sofia, Bulgaria. The Rule of Law Institute works to protect human rights through the rule of law. During his internship, Kraig’s primary project was to draft a legal memorandum on what changes Bulgaria needed to make to its Criminal Code to better align it with the European Convention on Human Rights.  Kraig also had the incredible opportunity to present at the Rule of Law Institute’s 20th Annual Jubilee Forum on how the rule of law has successfully worked in the United States to protect human rights. According to Kraig, “This internship has truly been a blessing, and I am so thankful for all the experiences I received.”
Whether fighting sex trafficking in India and Indonesia, advocating against partial-birth abortion in Europe, advancing the rule of law in Uganda, or securing religious freedom in Bulgaria and South Africa, our interns are making a difference.
