Programme Manager: Horn of Africa Project

Programme Manager:  Horn of Africa Project
The objective of the European Institute of Peace (EIP) is to contribute to and complement the global peace agenda of Europe and the European Union. We do so primarily through mediation and informal dialogue. The EIP pursues multi-track diplomacy and promotes best practice in conflict resolution. These responsibilities are executed through three types of initiatives: (a) mediation and facilitated dialogue, (b) public and preventive diplomacy, and lastly (c) innovation and capacity building in support of effective approaches to conflict prevention and peacemaking.
The EIP’s Horn of Africa (HoA) project is specifically designed to enhance in-country capacity to prevent and mitigate the threat of violent extremism in 3 countries in the Horn of Africa region. This is achieved through a tailored approach that unpacks the root causes and drivers of violent extremism and assesses the efficacy of current response, with the objective of supporting effective and customised methods to prevent and counter violent extremism (P/CVE). In consultation with the governments and others in the region, this will result in the co-design and delivery of tailored advice to each of the interested governments.
The EIP is looking for an experienced full-time Programme Manager to lead our HoA project and related staff and consultants. The Manager will work closely with one consortium partner, as well as high-level political leaders, technical departments at central and decentralized levels involved in P/CVE delivery, and opinion leaders relevant to the same.
