OXFAM has just released a new job opportunity! 

EFSVL GLOBAL ADVISOR – CONFLICT AND FRAGILE STATES (INT2419)

Location: OXFORD (OXFAM HOUSE)
Salary: £37,380 - £47,888
Region: Humanitarian
Division: International
Hours: 36
Job Type: Open ended
Closing Date: 9 June 2016

The difficulties of working in conflict and fragile state contexts are immense from both ethical and practical standpoints for the entire international aid community.  These complexities strongly challenge Oxfam’s typical ways of understanding and responding to humanitarian emergencies. There are major implications for how Oxfam can mount appropriate EFSVL programmes at scale in war/active conflict zones; protracted conflict; long-term/multiple displacement; and all or any of the above within a fragile state context. Currently, there is no focal point/advisor position for conflict and fragile contexts within the EFSVL team in the Global Humanitarian Team despite having active programming in the many complex contexts.   

Oxfam’s wide range of experience in complex emergencies needs to be brought together in order to identify common successes, challenges, and innovative/alternative approaches to take it forward from an organisational perspective, rather than country-specific and anecdotal. While the achievements of humanitarian teams in hard-to-work contexts have been extraordinary, there are clear areas where improvements are urgently needed and which will also contribute to Oxfam’s growth as a humanitarian actor.

The EFSVL Advisor focusing on operating within conflict and fragile states settings will work to ensure that assessments and programme design are tailored for active conflict zones, protracted conflict zones, and long-term displacement crises, respectively.  This will contribute to Oxfam’s broader EFSVL strategy objectives for response, preparedness, and resilience, and will integrate with the other substantive thematic areas of work i.e. markets.

Call for academic papers as part of a joint initiative between SOLIDAR, FEPS and the S&D Group in the European Parliament, the so called ‘Progressive lab for sustainable development’. 

The overall objective of the call is to explore new approaches and solutions to fight inequality, promote education for all and mobilize domestic resources

Thematic clusters and possible sub-themes:

  • Fighting inequalities by promoting sustainability in all its dimensions (economic, social and environmental) including responsible consumption and production, the respect of planetary boundaries, defending migrant and refugees’ rights; Promoting inclusive economic development models, investing in human development, decent work and universal social protection, and promoting tax justice and ‘fair’ trade policy.
  • Mobilizing domestic resource for sustainable development comprising decent work and social protection: this includes, for instance, tax justice, fight against tax dodging, illicit flows, using fiscal levies and charges on natural and environmental resources, optimizing the structure of subsidies and other public expenditures. Sustainable development should refer to economic objectives such as growth and equity, and especially to social objectives such as institutional development, participation and empowerment, social mobility, and social cohesion; it could also refer to donors’ support to domestic resource mobilization, and budget transparency and accountability.
  • Education including Education in Emergencies (EiE) and Conflict and Disaster Risk Reduction (C/DRR) integration in school through the provision of equitable learning opportunities for every child in situation of crisis, creating resilient societies, which are able to reduce the economic, social and cultural impacts should a hazardous event occur; universal access to quality education and protective learning environments; the role of education in promoting innovation and growth, as well as societal well-being and progress. Articles linking education with cross-cutting issues, including gender, human rights and inclusive education are encouraged.

Join the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) as a consultant! They welcome applications from individuals, partnership, associates and firms

 Technical Development of 2 x Social Protection e-learning modules (Parts 1 & 2)

As CaLP’s community of practice has grown there is an increasing need to develop online and flexible learning alternatives to reach a wider audience and allow participants to learn at their own pace, and in their own time.

The development of e-learning allows CaLP to reach people across the world and access self-study modules and courses that will enhance their skills and knowledge and can act as a “leveller” to ensure learners who enroll in CaLP’s face to face advanced courses have the pre-requisite skills and experience.

CaLP intends to convert 2 face-to-face social protection courses into e-learning in 2016.

These courses have been designed as a two-part face to face course. The first one is a 2-hour introductory course designed for any type of learner, and the second is a 5-hour more technical face to face course designed for programme staff with some prior knowledge of social protection and CTP programmes.

CaLP would want to convert these into 2 distinct courses – a 1.5 introductory course, followed by a 3 hour technical course.
