Local Peacebuilding Experts sought for: Haiti, Mali, Myanmar, Sudan, Syria, Thailand, Tunisia

Insight on Conflict provides information on local peacebuilding organisations in areas of conflict. We feature profiles of over 1,400 organisations around the world, as well as blog posts and key resources on peacebuilding. Key to our work is our network of ‘Local Peacebuilding Experts’, who help to research and write about peacebuilding and conflict around the world.

Peace Direct is currently seeking Local Peacebuilding Experts to report on peacebuilding work in: Haiti, Mali, Myanmar, Sudan, Syria, Thailand, and Tunisia.

For this role, we require someone with contacts in the NGO or peacebuilding sector, a strong interest in the media and reporting, and excellent written and spoken English (in the case of Haiti and Mali, we can consider working with a Local Peacebuilding Expert who speaks French and not English, though English language skills are an advantage). The role is ideal for someone pursuing a career in peacebuilding with an interest in journalism. Local Peacebuilding Experts should be based in the country they cover; we may consider people living outside the country if they have exceptional links to the peacebuilding sector in that country. Priority will be given to local/national applicants.

The role is not full-time and is not salaried, though Local Peacebuilding Experts do receive some payment for work published on the website. The work is best suited for people with a passionate desire to share information on peacebuilding with a wide audience.

In their role, the primary area of work of the Local Peacebuilding Expert will be on investigating and supplying information on local peacebuilders. The Local Peacebuilding Expert is expected to occasionally submit posts to the Insight on Conflict blog. The blog gives space to Peace Direct and the Local Peacebuilding Experts to respond instantly to developments in conflicts around the world. It also offers a place for more personal reflections by the Local Peacebuilding Experts on their work.

If you are interested in becoming Insight on Conflict’s Local Peacebuilding Expert for any of the above countries,  please send a CV, writing sample, and a short covering letter outlining your suitability for the role to Ruairi Nolan: ruairi.nolan@peacedirect.org

Deadline for applications: this is an open call for applications. Please note that if you are not a national of the country or region for which you are applying, or are not currently based in the country, your application will not be considered.
