Position Title: M-LEARN & Research Consultant 

Duty Station: Tunis, Tunisia 

Classification: Consultant 

Duration of Consultancy: Six months with possibility of extension 

Estimated Start Date: ASAP 

Reference Code: TN2022-016 

Organizational Context and Scope: 

Established in 1951, IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration  and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. IOM  is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by  providing services and advice to governments and migrants. This position falls under the the  Migration Literacy Enhancement Advance Non-Discrimination (M-LEARN) project. 

Following an increasing awareness of migration in the international arena, it has become  imperative to disseminate accurate and unbiased migration information, which is built on a  correct understanding and interpretation of migration data. This in turn fosters an environment  of non-discrimination, that is inclusive of diversity in gender, background and migration status,  in ever-changing and increasingly heterogeneous communities. Important enablers of such  environments include universities and academic institutions, together with the expression of  civil society members, as these are well-trusted transmitters of important information into the  public sphere. IOM aims to support such dissemination through the Migration Literacy  Enhancement Advance Non-Discrimination (M-LEARN) project in order to embed migration  data guidance into higher educational systems. A new curriculum on migration data and  statistics will be developed and rolled out. This will be achieved through the production of a university course on migration data, including a course handbook, which will be taught for the  first time-ever in French in Morocco and Tunisia, and of a related online module which will be  rolled out to a wider audience.
