Vacancy Announcement: VA17P024V01i.Map Migration Governance Traineeship
Project title: EUROMED Migration IV
Deadline for applications: 14 April 2017
Duty station: Valletta, Malta
Start date: 1 May 2017
Contract duration: 3 months
Eligible nationalities: ENI SPC Nationals Nationals (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, and Tunisia); EU Member States (+ Norway, Switzerland and Turkey)
The International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD), an international organisation with its headquarters in Vienna, Austria, is looking for qualified candidates to fill the above-mentioned position.
The EUROMED Migration IV (EMM4), a programme funded by the European Union (EU), aims to implement a comprehensive and shared approach to strengthening effective dialogue and cooperation on migration, mobility and international protection and asylum between EU Member States (EU MS) and European Neighbourhood Instrument South Partner Countries (ENI SPC: Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia and Syria-on hold). To this end, the programme provides a constructive and operational dialogue and co-operation framework, with particular focus on reinforcing regional and national instruments and capacities to develop and implement evidence-based and coherent migration policies and actions.
As a tool with which to support this mandate, the Interactive Map on Migration (i.Map) is a web-based information and knowledge platform which aims to enhance and facilitate information exchange and contribute to a more balanced narrative on migration. The tool is embedded in an inter-regional forum on migration and aims to serve a wide range of users, from governments of participating states to civil society and international organisations as well as the media. In 2016, the EMM4 joined the platform to better support its stakeholders in the Euro-Mediterranean region. EMM4 has therefore launched a process of redevelopment of the i.Map to modernise and adapt it to the current needs of different migration actors.
In this context, EMM4 is launching the first ever i-Map Migration Governance Traineeship for students and young professionals from EU and ENI SPC Member States. As part of an important regional migration dialogue, students passionate about the world of migration will have the opportunity to complement their migration knowledge with this 3-month Traineeship which will facilitate direct engagement with a diverse set of primary migration actors such as politicians, international organisations, civil society organisations, journalists, and local authorities.
This approach will help the selected Trainees to strengthen their understanding of various migration topics: irregular migration, legal migration, migration and development, and international protection and asylum, as well as of the roles and responsibilities of different actors involved in migration and how they interact and jointly contribute to migration governance.
Moreover, closely linked to the i.Map, the Traineeship will expose selected candidates to content production and management of an important information portal on migration. As such, the Trainees will provide innovative contributions to fuelling the growth of the i-Map structured around research, data collection, data visualisation, and media engagement. The multi-thematic digital platform will also include information on migration flows and routes, the development of a media centre, and the management of a contact and partner database.
More information about the i.Map Migration Governance Traineeship can be found here.
As part of the EMM4 programme, the Migration Governance Traineeship falls under the ICMPD Directorate for Migration Dialogues and Cooperation and will be hosted at the ICMPD Regional Office for the Mediterranean in Malta. As a team of 4, the Trainees will work closely with the i-Map Project Officer under the overall supervision of the EMM4 Project Manager.
As an integrated part of the EMM4 team, assignments and associated tasks to support the overall implementation of the EMM4 programme will be part of the responsibilities of each Trainee.
Amongst others, responsibilities will consist of:
