Apply: Senior Programme Officer - Constitution Building – Canberra

Deadline: 15 May 2017

The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) is an intergovernmental organization that supports sustainable democracy worldwide. International IDEA’s mission is to support sustainable democratic change by providing comparative knowledge, and assisting in democratic reform, and influencing policies and politics.

A considerable number of countries in Asia and the Pacific region are presently involved in constitution-building processes, at a variety of stages (pre constitution, constitution building, or implementation of a new constitution). Examples include Vanuatu, Fiji, the Solomon Islands, the Philippines, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Thailand.  International IDEA already has country presence and programming in Nepal and in Myanmar and has been involved in Thailand’s constitution building process, albeit with caution. In 2016 the Asia and the Pacific  program provided advice to the reform processes of Solomon Islands and of Vanuatu, and engaged with Philippines actors in anticipation of constitutional reform and further debates on federalism.   

International IDEA now seeks a Senior Programme Officer to further support its Constitution Building  work at the country, regional and global levels.
