Your new role
Conflict and violence are a frequent reality of life on the coast of Kenya.

To further develop the work of the CICC, a closer link is to be established between research and practice in the context of interreligious dialogue, extremist violence and marginalisation. The research findings gained are to be translated into peace-building work by means of further training for employees and religious leaders.

Specifically, you will carry out the following tasks:
 You will advise and support the newly established research department of the CICC, identify research questions and possible research fields and support the CICC in conducting field research. For this purpose you will also travel to crisis areas.
 You will advise on the conceptual link between research, research results and the practical work of the CICC and develop a documentation tool for this purpose.
 You will provide support for the development of best practices and lessons learned.
 You will strengthen networking with other research institutions.
 You will develop training for interreligious committees and leaders of faith-based organisations on the topics of conflict management and interreligious dialogue with the
aim of making better use of the potential of young people and women in peace-building work.
 You will be responsible for the proper spending and management of funds locally in accordance with the donor and AGIAMONDO guidelines. In doing so, you will work in partnership with the CICC.

Your profile
 You have completed a university degree in peace and conflict research, religious studies or another social science degree specialising in peace-building work, ideally with a doctorate.
 You are familiar with methods of participatory action research, peace-building and conflict analysis.
 You speak and write fluent English and you have very good knowledge of Swahili.
 You are an EU or Swiss citizen and identify with the goals and concerns of church development and peace work and are a member of a Christian church.

What AGIAMONDO offers
 Individual and thorough preparation
 Three-year contract, social security and remuneration in accordance with the German Development Aid Workers Act (Entwicklungshelfergesetz)
 Cultural, language or other professional training, as well as coaching and supervision, individual advice

We look forward to receiving your detailed application by 23/02/2020.

- Experience working with farmers in relevant industry field and rural based models
- Ideally exposure to forestry Harvesting and Processing operations
