Become United Nation ( UN ) Online Volunteer: Human rights & sustainable development researcher: Analysis and compilation of impactful human rights-based country policies
OHCHR is looking for two Online Volunteers to join the Surge Team, a field driven initiative composed of human rights/development specialists and heterodox macroeconomists. The Surge has been advising OHCHR and other UN field presences on human rights based recovery policies in the context of the COVID19 pandemic and is supporting over 30 seeding change country projects. The task is to document country practices with the aim to firm up impactful experiences and promote cross-fertilization within and outside the UN system.
Background and objectives:
The Surge Team’s objective is to increase the realisation of economic and social rights through country tailored research and advice on development, economic and fiscal policy options at the country level. The initiative is primarily geared towards providing specialised economic advice and content to OHCHR field presences and other members of UN country teams. Focus is on ‘building back better’ and leveraging states’ human rights obligations and recommendations to recover better, reduce inequalities and achieve inclusive social and economic systems.
The volunteer needs to be fluent in English. A second language, French or Spanish, is desirable. Experience in synthesizing large quantities of information into easy to understand findings is preferential. Knowledge and expertise with human rights and the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development are an important asset.
