Vacancy Notice   

Working efficiently, effectively and in a spirit of partnership, we support people and societies in developing, transition and industrialized countries in shaping their own futures and improving living conditions. This is what the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) is all about. As a federally owned enterprise, we support the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. We are also engaged in international education work around the globe.

 The project “Strengthening the influence of Palestinian refugees on their living conditions in the MENA region (PART II)” was commissioned by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in December 2021 to improve the capability of Palestinian refugees to influence their living conditions. The project is active in the Palestinian Territories, Jordan and Lebanon and its main political partner is the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). It also works in close cooperation with host government institutions as well as local NGOs and CBOs.  

PART II combines a conflict-transformative multi-level and a multi-stakeholder approach on a local, regional and international level. It focuses on improving psychosocial well-being as well as mental health in conjunction with strengthening social and economic participation. The project has a special focus on young Palestinian refugees, people with disabilities as well as people affected by poverty and gender-based violence.  

In order to achieve this, PART II works in three fields of action. Since the project is active in 3 countries, each one develops its own profile depending on the local framework conditions while creating synergies and linkages for a coordinated regional approach. 

  • Strengthen dialogue, exchange and support for joint transformation processes and solution perspectives: bridging refugees and camp stakeholders through constructive relations. 
  • Support for institutional change: implementation of participatory and inclusive mechanisms as well as internal reforms in partner organizations.  

In order to support the Regional Programme “Strengthening the Influence of Palestinian Refugees in their living conditions” (PART), we are looking for a
