What are unpaid internships costing us? | Peter Bateman | TEDxMonashUniversity

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. In his talk, Peter investigates the actual cost of unpaid internships, who they benefit and who they do not, ultimately asking how we can make the essential practice of internships fair. Peter believes that stories can change minds, communities and even the world. In 2018, he won the Melbourne Press Club’s Student Journalist of the Year Award. A freelance journalist and international civil servant, he moved to Thailand to pursue an internship at the United Nations secretariat for Asia and the Pacific after graduating from Monash’s double master of Journalism and International Relations program. He has worked all over the world, in Europe, North Africa, North and South America, Asia, the Middle East and Australia. His interest lies in policy development that can bring a positive change to humanitarian crises and disasters.
