    Researcher Jobs in Nairobi Kenya - Amnesty International: In order to be effective, Amnesty International’s (AI) International Secretariat needs to adapt to that change. That’s why we’re opening a hub in Nairobi. And why we need your research expertise with us on the ground.

    About the role

    Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, East Africa, South Sudan – each of these regions faces a number of extreme human rights issues.

    Issues like a lack of freedom of expression and association, forced evictions, international injustice, as well as abuses in both the criminal justice system and armed conflict. In order to get the word out about these violations, we need expertly developed research and campaigning strategies.

    And in one of four region specific roles, that’s exactly what you’ll deliver. As well as developing bespoke research projects and strategies, you’ll lead, monitor, research and investigate into human rights developments yourself – both at your desk and in the field.

    Ready to lead assessments of crisis situations and able to prepare thorough security assessments and political briefings, you’ll work as part of a team to make sure our hub research function is as flexible as it is effective.

    You’ll also understand that building a strong contact network and representing AI externally are central to ensuring your research has impact, as is the credibility and accuracy of your reports.

    About you

    A tried-and-tested human rights researcher, you’ll have specialist knowledge of your specific region and thematic areas - either Kenya and Uganda, DRC and the Great Lakes Region, Sudan or South Sudan – plus a well-developed understanding of human rights issues and the political landscape in the sub-region.

    Research Jobs in Kenya - Partnership for Peace and Security (PfPS)

    PfPS is a platform that brings together various actors, institutions and organizations working in the field of peace and security in Kenya with an objective of providing a credible avenue for peace building and conflict prevention responses.

    We do this through a joint framework of analysis, evidence-based programming and policy formulation through collaboration with state actors, civil society organizations, institutions of research and higher learning and think-tanks.

    PfPS is seeking the services of two (2) researchers to conduct a study to assess the Role of Devolution on Peace and Security Landscape in Select Counties.

    Background to the Study

    Kenya is undergoing a raft of reform processes ranging from political to governance, with devolution expected to be the most transformative in terms of equity and redistribution of resources.

    Devolution has largely been viewed by some as panacea to a myriad of conflicts in Kenya that have been attributed to unequal distribution of resources among other structural causes.

    Conversely, devolution is also being associated with new and emerging conflicts in some counties; conflicts relating to political supremacy, identities and management of high value minerals and other natural resources.

    Without a clear demarcation of the role, or contribution of devolution to the changing dynamic of peace and security in the country, and in specific counties, it is necessary to explore this relationship through a comprehensive study.

    Objective of the Study

    The overall objective of this assignment is to provide technical, policy and research support to PfPS through conducting a study in select counties to examine the role of devolution in the state of peace and security in those counties to enhance understanding of the this relationship and inform policy and programming interventions.

    Scope of Work

  • Develop the methodology for the study including data collection and sampling;
  • On the selected counties, provide a justification explaining the sampling. This section of the report will draw on the county profiles conducted in 2013.
  • Thematic data collection (Both primary and secondary)
  • For the selected counties, provide a brief background of peace and security dynamics. This section will also draw on the county profiles conducted in 2013 to provide a baseline on the state of peace and security in those counties.
  • For the counties under study, assess the role (and shifts therein) that devolution has had on the peace and security landscape paying special attention to conflict trends, drivers, emerging threats/fault lines (if any); interventions/peace and security enablers in place in those counties; the actors involved in those interventions and their relationships;
  • Draw the relationship, if any, between devolution and (changing) peace and security dynamics in those counties;
  • Initiate and sustain collaboration with various stakeholders related to the assignment; 8. Special attention should be given to identifying opportunities for and making recommendations regarding community-based, youth-focused, political party engagement and other approaches to enhance dialogue and other conflict prevention measures;
  • Facilitate validation workshops, if any.

    Duration of Assignment

  • 11 Working Days broken down into:
  • Desk Review 2 Days
  • Data Collection and Analysis 7 Days
  • Report Writing 2 Days

    Required Skills and Experience

  • Masters Degree in Peace and Security Studies, International Relations, International Conflict Management, Social Science or related field;
  • Over 5 years research experience in peace and security (please provide evidence of this)
  • Thorough knowledge and demonstrated extensive experience in conflict prevention policy development, programming and advocacy;
  • Demonstrated experience in conducting conflict, political economy and governance analysis and in designing and managing multi-stakeholder participatory conflict analysis processes and methodologies;
  • Nuanced knowledge of conflict analysis tools and methodologies;

    All Expressions of Interest should be sent to info [at] partnershipforpeace.or.ke with the Subject Line "Independent Consultant Ref PfPS/HR/01" attaching your current CV containing three referees, and Letter of Motivation.

    Please state your expected daily rate.

    Internews is looking for professionals to join the Internews Humanitarian Media Roster to respond to crises and emergencies around the world.

    During humanitarian disasters people affected by the unfolding tragedy need more than physical necessities. They also have an urgent need for information. In the aftermath of a crisis, from earthquakes, to armed conflicts, survival can depend on knowing the answers to essential questions. Should I stay with my family or go for help? Where is the nearest health facility? What is the extent of the damage? Where can I get clean water? What are the symptoms of cholera? Is it safe to go back home?

    To strengthen its immediate response capacity in emergency situations, Internews’ Humanitarian Information Project (HIP) has created a standing roster of humanitarian communication experts and media professionals.

    In the event of a humanitarian disaster, this roster allows Internews to quickly assemble groundbreaking response teams that deliver professional, timely, reliable and well-targeted humanitarian communication solutions in the wake of humanitarian crises.

    These teams will deploy within 24-36 hours of a disaster to identify and assist the local information ecosystem, support local media and help humanitarian responders understand, assess and address the information and communication needs of disaster affected communities.

    Experienced and highly motivated individuals who understand the complex nature of humanitarian disasters and can enter those situations with a good sense of calm, resilience and humor are encouraged to apply to be part of the Internews Humanitarian Media Roster.
