    2 Months

    Duties and Responsibilities

    Background:

    As part of its mandate to promote human development and democratic transition in the region, ESCWA has been implementing NAFS since 2012.

    Since then, the NAFS Programme has served as an inclusive platform for technical dialogue between Syrians from all walks of life, regardless of their political affiliation, and is the only such platform to systematically assess the policy needs for a post-conflict Syria, empowering Syrians themselves to make that assessment.

    It has provided them a safe space where they can engage in discussions on the post-conflict development needs and trajectories of the country, to prevent and overcome a conflict trap, and strengthen the resilience of local structures over the medium and long term.

    The Programme produces research and analysis that reflects the views, needs, and priorities of Syrians, and NAFS endeavors to share and disseminate its work as widely as possible and to convey the voices of its network of Syrians as much as possible.

    The programme's outputs are aimed at Syrians both inside Syria and outside Syria, UN agencies working on the Syrian conflict, the political actors as well as the international community planning for the future of the country.


    Duties and responsibilities:
    The intern will be involved in carrying out the following tasks:

    • Collect data on key topics and conduct cross-checking for consistency and validation.
    • Conduct research and reference searches on issues related to Syria and conflict contexts.
    • Supports drafting inputs for presentations, project documents, and research papers.
    • Note taking of the expert group and consultation meetings.
    • Prepares briefs and summaries on priority and emerging issues, including comparative research on key topics.
    • Performs other tasks as requested by the programme manager.
