Saferworld is an independent international organisation working to prevent violent conflict and build safer lives. We work with people affected by conflict to improve their safety and sense of security, and conduct wider research and analysis.
The focus of this post is to:
The Adviser will help advance Saferworld’s work on peacebuilding responses to crises and threats, with a particular focus in the immediate term in shaping our policy and advocacy agenda regarding securitised responses to irregular migration and their implications for peace, rights and governance overseas. Our past work on this theme identifies several challenges and suggests the need for new, more effective and sustainable strategies that are more focused on peacebuilding and promoting human rights. This work is closely connected to our wider agenda of research and advocacy regarding international stabilisation, counter-terror and countering/preventing violent extremism efforts and their impacts on peace, rights and governance in relevant contexts.
The person we are looking for will have a track record of working on peacebuilding, governance and/or human rights in at least two contexts significantly affected by violent conflict, terror threats, repression, forced displacement and/or human rights abuses – preferably in MENA/the Sahel. S/he will a commitment to improving international engagement in conflict-affected contexts and experience-based ideas as to how this can be achieved.
