Détails de l'opportunité

Régions concernées par cette opportunité: Tunis

IDEA MENA is seeking a consultant specialised in “Building networks and coalitions” in order to conduct related workshops in five MENA countries.

Reporting to the Regional Programs Manager, IDEA MENA (based in Tunis, Tunisia), the consultant will have a contract with flexible work hours that will be agreed with the Regional Programs manager.

The Organisation:

The International Debate Education Association (IDEA) is a global network of organisations that value debate as a way of giving young people a voice. Our vision is to “Empower young people worldwide today to be the active citizens of tomorrow.”

Our mission is to provide young people a voice through education, debate and by raising their awareness about worldwide issues. Indeed, the organisation believes that debate provides a forum for the open exchange of ideas and the opportunity to consider an opposing point of view. Debate nurtures critical thinking and dialogue.

The IDEA network has offices in Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, the Netherlands, Tunisia, and the UK. We operate with a network of partner organisations across 60 countries.

IDEA Middle East & North Africa (IDEA MENA) is the IDEA Network’s office in the MENA region. IDEA MENA is registered as a regional NGO based in Tunis since 2013. The scope of work covers 19 countries from the MENA region (Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen).

IDEA MENA has three main programmatic lines:

I. Shaping Policy

IDEA MENA strives to empower active youth with the adequate skills and knowledge to become effectively involved in decision-making processes in their communities and countries. This objective has translated in programs aiming to introduce active youth to the policy process and policy drafting, and to build the capacity of youth organisations and CSOs in general to influence policy.

II. The Debate Incubator

As the debate education leader in the world and the region, IDEA MENA provides technical support to debate initiatives in 19 countries in the MENA region and develops innovative debate-based programs and activities to be adapted that can be adapted to formal and informal settings. Activities under this programmatic line include: trainer’s accreditation, training of trainers, curriculum development, publishing of books and other materials related to debate, offering on-line support for debate initiatives across the MENA region, etc.

III. Activating Citizenship

Under this programmatic line, we give a voice to marginalized and disadvantaged young people in the MENA region. By introducing them to debate-related skills (critical thinking, public speaking, etc.) in informal settings, and by organizing events that facilitate dialogue between them and the different actors that affect their daily lives (including local authorities, police, educational institutions, etc.), we help them acquire little by little the skills they need in order to become outspoken leaders who are capable of achieving positive impact in their communities.
