Researcher/Psycho-Social Support (Tawergha Community)

Job Type: Contract | Company: CTG Global | Location: Tripoli, Libya | Date posted: 22-08-2017

OVERVIEW OF CTG GLOBAL

CTG support and manage humanitarian projects in fragile and conflict-affected countries around the world. With past performance in 15 countries – from the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and Central and South America – we offer a holistic fabric of project management, implementation and support. Skilled in emergency response to crises such as the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, we have the ability to act quickly (crisis response teams can be on the ground in 24 hours) and to establish structured operations in high-risk environments. CTG recruit and manage qualified, skilled teams with extensive experience operating in challenging conditions.

 

OVERVIEW OF THE POSITION

In accordance with its mandate under United Nations Security Council Resolution 2213 (2015), the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) has been actively engaged in efforts to mediate a peaceful resolution to Libya's political and institutional crisis and bring an end to the armed conflict. Through a joint project, our client is working with UNSMIL to support transitional justice initiatives in Libya.

The Support to Transitional Justice and Reconciliation at the Local and National Levels in Libya is a 2-year project that aims to facilitate dialogue between different parties in localized disputes and to work with the parties to identify a way to develop capacities for conflict resolution, establish transitional processes to deal with past violations and develop plans to enhance community security. The project will support key actors at the local and national levels to a) continue dialogue processes on transitional justice and return of IDPs; b) develop strategies and plans to support transitional justice measures; c) support inclusive community safety and security planning. The project has begun with the Misrata and Tawergha dialogue and will aim to replicate the approach in other communities through the course of 2017.

The Libyan state has primary responsibility in implementing a robust transitional justice process that includes reparation for victims. However, the international community should now contribute to the process by encouraging the parties to agree on symbolic processes for settling these disputes. In the Misrata/Tawergha context both communities have acknowledged the importance of collective and symbolic reparation as a way of moving forward in resolving their conflict. They have also identified the establishment of  psychosocial support centres for both communities in the spirit of a symbolic reparation project as an essential element of on-going dialogue process between the two communities and in resolving their disputes.

 

GENERAL FUNCTIONS 

Role objective: 

The project requires now the services of a national consultant with background in  humanitarian studies, psychology, sociology or any relevant studies  to support  the separately recruited  international psychosocial expert   to map the needs of the Tawergha  community for the establishment of  a psychosocial support center in Tawergha or alternative solution  based on the needs of the stakeholders as well as international best practice.
