Mid-Level Democracy and Governance or Conflict Specialist
AMEX International, Inc
Last Date: May 11, 2011
AMEX International, Inc., a Washington, DC-based international development consulting firm, is submitting a proposal to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) titled “Defining the Potential Development Assistance Contributions to Counternarcotic Efforts in Africa.” This is a 1-year project that is expected to start in mid-June 2011. Basically, a small core team of perhaps 2-3 U.S.-based consultants will analyze the issue of drug trafficking in Africa, with a focus on development-related aspects, especially in identifying how development assistance can complement and benefit from the counternarcotic efforts of the US government (USG) interagency and key international partners.
The overall deliverable under this project will be a Program Guide that will assist USAID Missions and other Country Team staff to prevent, mitigate or respond to the effects of drug trafficking in coordination with other partners, including USG agencies, other donors, and host country actors. This Program Guide is expected to describe the relationship between development and drug trafficking in Africa, give an overview of how development assistance could complement other USG interagency and international counternarcotic approaches, provide general policy recommendations and programmatic guidance for development assistance counternarcotic efforts, and give details of an illustrative program design for at least one of the case studies done in the four countries targeted by the project—Kenya, Mozambique, Mali, and a to-be-determined coastal West African country.
Requirements of applicants for the Mid-Level Democracy and Governance or Conflict Specialist include:
• MA or PhD in international development, international security, public administration and/or related subject. Mid-level candidates with a PhD must have a minimum of three years of relevant experience working with security actors in an international setting; mid-level candidates with an MA must have a minimum of six years of experience.
• Relevant experience in designing, managing or overseeing international development programs for senior foreign government or US officials; at least two years of experience conducting related programs overseas.
• Experience working successfully with senior officials is essential.
• U.S. Citizenship required in order to have or obtain security clearance at the secret or top secret level
• Language proficiency in French and/or Portuguese strongly preferred.
