Background and objectives
UNDP's Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE) practice encompasses programming in 34 countries, integrating support to livelihoods, governance, dialogue, conflict prevention and peacebuilding. Effective measures to prevent violent extremism must continuously advance in a response to the changing local and global dynamics by incorporating evidence-based and innovative approaches, newest research and data. The UN Volunteers will support this by extracting best practices and lessons learned across the PVE practice and use this to develop knowledge products such as country profiles, case stories and briefs. The volunteers can further engage in refining the PVE knowledge management system and identify new ways of exchanging knowledge across the PVE practice. A small team of volunteers will be recruited for this task who will be supported and supervised by the PVE staff members.
Writing and editing
Public information and reporting
The volunteer will support UNDPs efforts to strengthen knowledge sharing, global communication and learning in the area of Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE). In early 2020 UNDP conducted a stocktaking review of the PVE practice, outlining an overview of the policy, programmes and projects implemented across 34 countries. Building on this exercise, the UN volunteers will support the development of more detailed knowledge documents and support the refinement of the PVE knowledge management system and learning practice. This work will add great value to not only the knowledge sharing on PVE within UNDP but also with a broader global community of PVE practitioners.
Volunteers: 2 needed
6-10 hours per week / 8 weeks
Excellent written English and document editing skills. Knowledge of and interest in Peacebuilding, Conflict Prevention or Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE) is required. Knowledge of UN terminology is an advantage but not a requirement.
