Civic Education Adviser (International Consultant)

The signing of a revitalized peace agreement by the parties to the conflict and reconstitution of the government of national unity signals increased space and opportunities to advance reconciliation between the conflicting communities at subnational level. The subnational peace is vital to complement and sustain the national peace process as the communal conflicts are amenable to be exploited by political elites for their political vested interests. Mobilization of the communities for peace and reconciliation would put pressure on political elites to pursue a genuine peace agenda. Further, strengthening the nexus between sub-national reconciliation with national peace process will complement the implementation of the revitalized peace agreement and more broadly the national reconciliation agenda.

Civil Affairs Division intends to hire an International Consultant who has specialization in Civic Education. With the foreseen mission mandate on institutional development and capacity building, the Civil Education Adviser will contribute to CAD’s shift to supporting extension of state authority with entry points for grassroots-level civic education and upcoming political transition, including elections. The consultant will also draft an operational plan to implement the strategy.

Responsibilities:

  • Identify and articulate strategic priorities, opportunities, and entry points for Mission support actions in strengthening extension of state authority with entry points for grassroots-level civic education and upcoming political transition, including elections from existing mission approaches and best practices of other countries. With the foreseen mission mandate on institutional development and capacity building, the Civil Education Adviser (Int’l) will contribute to CAD’s shift to supporting extension of state authority with entry points for grassroots-level civic education and upcoming political transition, including elections
  • Identify areas in communal engagements which will strengthen the nexus between the subnational and national civic education process
  • Develop an operational plan to implement the strategy at the subnational level

The world looks to the United Nations for solutions to complex problems everywhere; from ending conflict and alleviating poverty, to combating climate change and defending human rights. The issues on our agenda are manifold and diverse as are the careers we offer. Among our ranks you will find staff members who monitor elections, disarm child soldiers, coordinate relief in humanitarian crises and provide administrative as well as logistical support to carry out our complex mandates. These are just a few examples amongst our many other equally critical and necessary functions.

The wide array of jobs means that you may change functions, departments, geographic locations, and even organizations or fields of work throughout your career in the Organization.

The diversity of our people, some 41,000 staff from our 193 Member States, means that you will find yourself working in multi-cultural teams with people from all backgrounds and cultures who have wide perspectives, experiences, expectations as well as approaches.

What we do

The United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945 and committed to maintaining international peace and security; developing friendly relations among nations; promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights.

Due to its unique international character, and the powers vested in its founding Charter, the Organization takes action on a wide range of issues, and provides a forum for its 193 Member States to express their views, through the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council and other bodies and committees.

The work of the United Nations touches every corner of the globe and focuses on a broad range of fundamental issues, like sustainable development, protection of the environment and refugees, disaster relief and mitigation, counter terrorism, as well as disarmament and non-proliferation.

In September 2015, world leaders gathered at the United Nations Headquarters in New York and unanimously adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a new universal standard for development that will ensure no one is left behind.

17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent the cornerstone of the historic, transformational Agenda. Building on the success of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the SDGs aim to go further to end all forms of poverty. Universal and indivisible, the SDGs call for action by all countries—developed, developing and middle-income—to promote prosperity while protecting the planet over the next fifteen years.

The SDGs officially came into force on 1 January 2016. Governments, businesses and civil society have started mobilizing efforts to achieve the goals, by aligning their priorities with the SDGs and adopting plans to achieve them.
