وظيفة شاغرة لدى المجلس الدنماركي للاجئين (Livelihoods Feasibility Study Consultant )

Job Description
Livelihoods Feasibility Study Consultant

We are looking for a highly qualified and independent Livelihoods Feasibility Consultant to join DRC in Tunisia.

Who are we?

Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is an International non-governmental organisation, which promotes and supports durable solutions to the problems faced by refugees and internally displaced people all over the world. Danish Demining Group (DDG) is a Humanitarian Mine Action Unit in the Danish Refugee Council. The DDG mission is to recreate a safe environment where people can live without the threat of Landmines, Unexploded Ordnances and Small Arms & Light Weapons.

As part of an integrated Libya-Tunisia programme, Danish Refugee Council started working in Tunisia in 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. As most refugees were granted resettlement to countries including the USA, Canada and Germany, the number of people living in Shousha camp dwindled and the camp was officially closed in mid-2013.

In 2014 DRC returned to Tunisia through its demining wing, Danish Demining Group, initiating a pilot project under UK Conflict Pool funding to foster trust between border authorities/national police and disaffected youth in the vulnerable border area of Ben Guerdane. Such dialogue and cooperation forum served as a platform to increase overall understanding between the security providers and the population including community radio sessions and other related activities.

Building on the achievements of its violence prevention programmes, DDG – in cooperation with DRC – seeks an external consultant (individual) to identify alternative ways of supporting disenfranchised youth in border areas in the South of Tunisia, focusing on the feasibility to start livelihoods support programming.
