Democracy Reporting International (DRI) is a non-partisan, independent, not-for-profit organisation registered in Berlin. DRI promotes the political participation of citizens, accountability of state bodies and the development of democratic institutions worldwide.
In most developing countries economic growth and export opportunities do not go hand-in-hand with improvements in citizens’ enjoyment of fundamental human and labour rights. In line with its core values, the EU is therefore promoting sustainable development and human rights through its trade instruments, in particular the Generalised Scheme of Preference Plus (GSP+). Recognising the importance of GSP+ as a mechanism to promote fundamental freedoms and rights, DRI is implementing a three-year project (February 2017 – January 2020) funded by the EU to support the advancement of human and labour rights in nine countries worldwide (Armenia, Bolivia, Cape Verde, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Paraguay, the Philippines and Sri Lanka). The project may be extended or a follow-up project is possible.
In the project, DRI and its country partners seek to use the opportunities created by the GSP+ to inform and empower citizens so they can actively claim their rights. The project focuses on human rights monitoring and multi-stakeholder consultations on the situation of human and labour rights in the country, engaging with citizens’ organisations, trade unions, the business community and local authorities. DRI is therefore currently recruiting a full-time Programme Manager for its head office in Berlin.
Under the overall supervision of DRI’s Director of Programmes, the Programme Manager, Global Human Rights Project (GSP+) will be responsible for managing the implementation of DRI’s global GSP+ Project, coordinating effectively activities at the national and global levels, overseeing the country-specific components in 9 participating countries as well as implementing a set of global activities. More specifically, the Programme Manager will be responsible for the following tasks:
