Détails de l'opportunité

Who are we? DRC has been operating in the Middle East and North Africa for over a decade, running a combination of livelihood, protection, advocacy and relief projects. DRC has six project offices throughout Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Tunisia/Libya, Turkey, and both a country and regional office in Jordan.

As part on an integrated Libya-Tunisia programme, Danish Refugee Council and its Humanitarian Mine Action (HMA) and Armed Violence Reduction (AVR) Unit, the Danish Demining Group (DDG) have worked in Libya since August 2011 on a range of issues which affect the lives of Libyans, asylum seekers and migrants. Some problems, such as the widespread presence of Explosive Remnants of WAR (ERW) and Small Arms Light Weapons stem from the recent conflict during the Revolution which ended in October 2011. Others, such as the precarious situation of migrants and asylum seekers who have travelled to Libya from other countries have a much longer history. DRC and DDG currently have projects in the greater Tripoli area and in Sabha in southern Libya as well as some interesting opportunities for the mission to expand into new geographical areas particularly with regard to DDG operations .

The programme responds to the problems created by forced migration, explosive remnants of war and armed violence and the focus has evolved from emergency response to building durable Libyan capacity which can support the rights of communities and vulnerable individuals to live in safety and dignity.

DRC has worked in Tunisia since March 2011 concentrating on providing a range of services to third-country nationals who were asylum seekers in Libya and who escaped conflict and persecution during the Libyan Revolution by crossing into Tunisia. DRC was the main implementing agency providing services in Shousha refugee camp as well as to refugees living in urban centres in southern Tunisia. As most refugees were eventually granted resettlement, the camp was officially closed in mid-2013. Nonetheless DRC remains concerned about the situation of remaining asylum seekers and migrants in Tunisia and is currently exploring some interesting opportunities to continuing working on issues of mixed migration and cross border security in the country.
