Position title: expert in gender inclusion

Type of contract: medium term consultant  

Application Deadline: 8 October 2020

Contract start date: 17 October 2020

Contract duration: End of December 2021

Place of work: in Tunis, except during the COVID 19 pandemic, the expert will be home based but must be present remotely at the project activities.

I- Background 

 The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) is an intergovernmental organization with a mission to advance democracy worldwide, as a universal human aspiration and an enabler of sustainable development, through support to the building, strengthening and safeguarding of democratic political institutions and processes at all levels.

Since 2016, International IDEA has been implementing a project to provide support to Yemen’s peace process.  From 2016 to October 2018, the project mainly consisted of dialogue sessions and expert meetings, and focused on Yemen’s constitutional future. During the relevant period, the following activities are planned: 

  1. Dialogue sessions on Yemen’s constitutional future, including a focus on the long term constitutional arrangements as well as the short term institutional and power sharing arrangements that will be in force in the immediate post-conflict period.  
  2. Working sessions with Yemen’s main political forces that will seek to deepen mid-level political group members’ understanding of the range of options on key constitutional and legal issues, and each option’s likely advantages and disadvantages.  These working sessions will enable the negotiating parties to engage with the inevitable constitutional and legal complexities that will arise when the broader political arrangements are agreed.  
  3. Capacity building sessions for members of Yemen’s political groups and civil society, in particular with a view to developing their understanding of how the text of a peace agreement or a constitution should work, etc.  The outputs will include: (a) the formation of a group of skilled drafters and negotiators who can serve as a resource for all future negotiations; and (b) a series of briefing papers on all the drafting issues that will have to be considered, and that will be made available to all interested parties.  

In that context, IDEA is seeking to retain an expert in gender inclusion, democratic transition and peace negotiations who can participate in all or in the large majority of the project’s activities and integrate a gender perspective in all activities.
