Investigator at the International Rescue Committee (IRC)

Posted on Thu 06th Oct, 2022 - --- (0 comments)

The International Rescue Committee is among the world’s leading humanitarian relief and development organizations. The IRC has been at the forefront of virtually every major humanitarian initiative to assist people uprooted by war, persecution, or civil disputes for the last 80 years. And, more than 80 years after Albert Einstein helped create the IRC, the number and intensity of humanitarian crises across the globe warrant a dose of Einstein-inspired innovation.

The IRC has grown because its teams have gone to the toughest places, done innovative research, developed in-depth knowledge, and forged vital relationships with local governments. At work today in over 40 countries and in 28 US cities, the IRC restores safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.
