  1. Introduction

Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is an international non-governmental organization which promotes and supports durable solutions to the problems faced by vulnerable people affected by conflict and instability all over the world. Danish Demining Group (DDG) is the branch of DRC that focuses on human security programming. DRC focuses on human security and programming and strives to identify safety and security needs from the perspective of those living with conflict and to help them find non-violent solutions. These go beyond traditional mine action activities to include Violence Reduction (VR). VR programming specifically seeks to engage communities in developing durable solutions to local safety and security challenges.


DRC operated in Tunisia from 2011 to 2013 to provide direct humanitarian assistance to refugees fleeing the Libyan crisis in Shousha camp near Ben Guerdane. Since that time, the organization has been able to generate visibility and credibility among local communities and develop of sound understanding of the local context. Most significantly, DRC has been present in southeast Tunisia since 2014, enhancing community security and resilience in the border-towns of Ben Guerdane and Dehiba and, in March 2018, extended its current iteration of programming to the Libyan border-towns of Zuwara, Nalut, and Wazin with a similar approach.

DRC programming has sought to address border management holistically, investing in analysing the full system of dynamics that cause tension within and across communities and fuel insecurity and illicit trade throughout the border region. As a result, DRC has succeeded in establishing Conflict Management  and Analysis Committees (CMACs) in each town, as well as opportunities for exchange and joint cross-border conflict response initiatives that are contributing to preventing violence and to the stabilization of the border.

Thanks to the funds of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, DRC envisions a process whereby 5 pre-established Conflict Management and Analysis Committees (CMACs) in the border-towns of Ben Guerdane, Dehiba (in Tunisia) and Zuwara, Nalut and Wazin (in Libya) can reinforce their conflict management and advocacy skills, plus create spaces of dialogue for the communities to address conflict in their region.

Within the ongoing “Violence Prevention Along the Tunisia-Libya Border Project”, a second in-depth  advocacy and media engagement training session is foreseen that will strengthen the ability of the Committees to communicate with key stakeholders at the local, regional, and national levels using adequate advocacy strategies and dissemination  tools. This second training session will build on the previous outputs , take away from former sessions and will capitalize the skills gained by participants in order to proceed with the local  implementation of community-led advocacy campaigns.

Purpose of the consultancy

The overall purpose of this consultancy is to design and deliver a training session on advocacy skills addressed  to the members of the Conflict Management and Analysis Committees established in the 5 locations where the “Violence Prevention along the Tunisia-Libya border Project” intervenes based on the outputs already achieved during a first training session that took place in November 2020. The training aims to give participants foundational skills for developing advocacy strategies, messages and tools, as well as best practices for media engagement and concrete implementation of the identified and designed campaigns. Utilizing DRC’s established Advocacy Training Manual, the selected consultant will therefore be fully engaged in the process of designing and adapting the specific training session and will ensure effective rollout of the already established DRC methodologies and materials.
