The Middle East and North Africa Programme at the International Secretariat of Amnesty International is seeking to appoint two dynamic, team oriented people to the role of Researcher in the North Africa team with a focus on Egypt and/or Libya.
About the job
As a research-based campaigning organization, investigating and documenting human rights issues is fundamental to our advocacy and lobbying work. Our North Africa team requires two Researchers to take the lead in initiating human rights research and action by providing regional and thematic expertise, excellent research skills and sound political judgement. A campaign oriented approach to your work is essential. You will be required to conduct and co-ordinate research activities, monitor, investigate and analyse political, legal and social developments and human rights conditions, give authoritative advice on these areas and prepare human rights action materials.
With experience of working on human rights issues, you must have first-hand in-depth knowledge and experience of Egypt and Libya and an understanding and awareness of the cultures of North Africa. You’ll have a background in activism, academia, law or journalism with the ability to identify and thoroughly investigate those issues and ensure our voice has authority. You will need proven research and communication skills, impartial political judgement, coupled with strong strategic thought. Fluency in English, including excellent writing skills, is essential, as is the ability to speak and read Arabic fluently.

One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.
