Global Policy Advisor

In October 2018, LPI launched a novel and ambitious programme which aims to change how peace builders and policymakers interact and work together. We believe this will create better global policies for responding to conflict and promoting peace around the world. We also hope it will result in policymaking processes that are genuinely participatory and mutually beneficial. This is the goal of the Inclusive Peace in Practice initiative (IPIP).

We are seeking a Global Policy Advisor to guide and support the implementation of the IPIP programme. In addition, they will play an important role in the development and implementation of LPI’s growing policy work, including by supporting the development of country programmes’ policy engagement strategies. We are specifically looking for support to LPI’s Ethiopia and Horn of Africa Regional programmes.

About us

The Life & Peace Institute (LPI) is an international centre that supports and promotes nonviolent approaches to conflict transformation through a combination of research and action. At the core of this work is the strengthening of existing local capacities and enhancing the preconditions for building peace. For the past thirty years, LPI has partnered with civil society organisations and research institutions to strengthen locally-led peacebuilding processes through capacity development and accompaniment.  Through programmes in Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, and Sudan, LPI brings a range of participatory approaches and methodologies that are effective in creating space for dialogue, violence prevention, and peacebuilding action. LPI also supports the development of policies that help to improve the lives of people in places affected by violence, including through its Horn of Africa Regional Programme based in Addis Ababa. Increasingly, LPI is also seeking to link its work to the global policy discussions on peacebuilding and conflict transformation with a view to inform the theoretical and policy debates with the practice of lived experience of peace builders.

About your role The Global Peace building Policy Advisor will guide and support the implementation of the IPIP initiative as well as provide support to LPI’s programmatic policy engagement efforts, in close coordination with LPI colleagues and partners.
