VACANCY TYPE: Consultancy / Service Contract

FIELD OF EXPERTISE: Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE), CSO management

LOCATION: Kosovo, Albania, North Macedonia

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: 10 June 2024

BACKGROUND

ATRC’s Resilient Community Program  aims to increase local community agency of Prevention of Violent Extremism and Rehabilitation and Reintegration (R&R) by building capacities of key actors and foster a local multi-stakeholder approach. 

The Program includes:

“Resilience and Inclusive Communities” funded by the Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund, implemented together with partners BIRN Kosovo, Community Building Mitrovica, and Rin’ON. 

The main target groups of this project are:

  • Central and local government institutions and frontline workers;
  • Local Civil Society Organisations (CSOs);
  • Other local non-state actors, in particular youth;
  • Returnees/former terrorist offenders and their families/caregivers.

The project’s four main objectives are:

  1. Strengthening central and local level institutional operational and knowledge capacities;
  2. Strengthening operational and knowledge capacities of local CSOs and other local non-state actors;
  3. Reducing youth vulnerability towards violent extremism by increasing their sense of purpose and improving social cohesion;
  4. Raising community awareness to reduce stigmatisation of returnees and other marginalised groups.

In addition, the project will provide individual support to foster the rehabilitation and reintegration of returnees/former terrorist fighters and their families/caregivers.

“Strengthening the multistakeholder approach to prevent youth violence and build resilience”, a regional project funded by Smart Balkans, implemented together with partners Counselling Line for Women and Girls (CLWG) in Albania and Pleiades in North Macedonia.

The main target groups of this project are:

  • Local government institutions/ mechanisms/ workers including municipality staff, multidisciplinary teams or equivalent mechanisms, frontline workers; 
  • Non-state actors working on this thematic including CSOs and families; 
  • Youth mechanisms, in particular youth centers and youth-led CSOs.

The project’s four main objectives are:

  1.  Local state and non-state PVE actors have improved capacities to use a local multistakeholder approach to plan, implement and evaluate initiatives on extremist violence prevention and building resilient youth and communities; 
  2. Youth centers have improved capacities to plan, implement and evaluate initiatives on preventing violence against and among youth, including PVE; 
  3. State and non-state PVE actors have established a regional communication channel and have exchanged good practices and lessons learned at a regional level; 
  4. More information is available on the capacities, implementation and evaluation of work of different state and non-state PVE actors.

ATRC looks to establish a roster of experts and consultants for contractual engagement in ATRC’s Resilient Community Program current and future projects and thereby calls for applications of qualified, experienced experts in the focus areas mentioned above.
