Associate Political Affairs Officer (JPO, P2)

United States of America, New York, New York - OSA PG

Part of the [Swiss JPO Programme](https://www.cinfo.ch/jpo), this position is sponsored by the Peace and Human Rights Division (PHRD). This position is reserved for Swiss nationals holding a Master's degree and strong interest in a career in multilateral organizations (max. age: 32 years).   The Prevention of Genocide On 7 April 2004, the tenth anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda, then-Secretary-General Kofi Annan announced the creation of the post of Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide.  The creation of the post was part of a broader Action Plan to Prevent Genocide involving the whole United Nations, summarized under five headings: preventing armed conflict, protection of civilians in armed conflict, ending impunity, early and clear warning and swift as well as decisive action.  Secretary-General Annan's letter to the Security Council on 13 July 2004 (S/2004/567) set out the mandate of the Special Adviser:  a) to collect existing information?in particular from within the UN system?on massive and serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law of ethnic and racial origin that, if not prevented or halted, might lead to genocide; b) to act as a mechanism of early warning to the Secretary-General, and through him to the Security Council, by bringing to their attention situations that could result in genocide; c) to make recommendations to the Council, through the Secretary-General, on actions to prevent or halt genocide; and d) to liaise with the UN system on activities for the prevention of genocide and to work to enhance the UN capacity to analyze and manage information related to genocide or related crimes. In 2007, the position was made full-time, at the USG level.   The Responsibility to Protect At the 2005 World Summit, Heads of State and Government unanimously affirmed that 'each individual State has the responsibility to protect its populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.' They agreed that, when appropriate, the international community should assist States in exercising that responsibility by building their protection capacities before crises and conflicts break out. However, when a state is 'manifestly failing' to protect its population from the four specified crimes, the Heads of State and Government confirmed that the international community was prepared to take collective action, through the Security Council and in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations. In his 2007 letter ([S/2007/721](http://www.un.org/ga/search/view_doc.asp?symbol=S/2007/721)) to the President of the Security Council, the Secretary-General recognized the link between large scale atrocities and threats to peace and security.  He announced his intention to appoint a Special Adviser on the Responsibility to Protect, who would focus on conceptual development and consensus building. In the Secretary-General's 2010 report ([A/64/864](http://www.un.org/ga/search/view_doc.asp?symbol=S/2007/721)) entitled 'Early warning, assessment and the responsibility to protect', the Secretary-General further defined this role, stating that the Special Adviser's tasks included the development and refinement of the Responsibility to Protect concept and continuing a political dialogue with Member States and other stakeholders on further steps toward implementation. The two Special Advisers have distinct but closely related responsibilities.  In order to save resources and maximize effectiveness, the Secretary-General institutionalized the collaboration between the Special Advisers by establishing a joint office. As far as possible, the two Advisors share a common methodology for early warning, assessment, convening, learning, and advocacy, as well as a common office and staff. The Office currently consists of eight professional and two general staff, in addition to the two Special Advisers.     Under the supervision of the Chief of Office, the JPO undertakes the following functions: - Monitor and assess developments in the countries or region assigned; assist in alerting the Special Advisers to situations where there is a risk of genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing or crimes against humanity; - Liaise with UN offices and outside experts involved in peace and security as well as human rights activities to ensure the systematic collection of data regarding possible situations of massive violations of human rights and international humanitarian law within the designated geographical area; - Participate in fact-finding missions to examine situations of concern due to the existence or possibility of massive violations of human rights or of humanitarian law, as required; - Assist in the analysis of human rights, political and related information to provide advice to the Special Advisers on courses of action to address situations of massive violations of human rights and international humanitarian law that could potentially lead to or result in war crimes, genocide, ethnic cleansing or crimes against humanity; - Assist in the drafting of advisory notes and reports from the Special Advisers to the UN Secretary-General; - Assist in the preparation of briefings, speeches and public communications; - Accompany the Special Advisers to meetings with UN officials, Diplomatic Representatives, regional organizations, Civil Society Organizations and academic institutions and prepare notes of those meetings; - Represent the Office in UN inter-agency forums and meetings with civil society, as required; - Assist in the preparation and organization of capacity building seminars worldwide; - Participate in conferences, seminars and academic forums relevant to the work of the Office; - Keep UN offices informed of the work of the Office of the Special Advisers; - Carry out administrative functions relating to the staff planning and budget, as required; - Other tasks, as required   Please find the full job description here: For the Swiss JPO programme - Swiss nationality - Not older than 32 years at the date of the first round of interviews - Strong interest in a longer-term career with the United Nations    For this position - Advanced university degree in (Master's or equivalent) in law, political science, international relations, human rights or related field. A first-level university degree in combination with two additional years of qualifying experience may be accepted in lieu of the advanced university degree. - At least three (if advanced university degree) or five (if first level university degree) years of relevant work experience in international relations, human rights, political affairs, international criminal law or related fields is required. Please be aware that 3 years' experience is a must for PHRD. OSAPG counts internships at 50%. - English and French are the working languages of the UN Secretariat.

IFC Regional Vice President, Middle East, Central Asia etc.

United States of America, District of Columbia, Washington - international finance corporation

  Description Established in 1944, the World Bank Group (WBG) is one of the world's largest sources of funding and knowledge for development solutions. The WBG consists of five specialized institutions: The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), the International Development Association (IDA), the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA), and the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). The International Finance Corporation (IFC) is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in emerging markets. Working with 2,000 businesses worldwide, the Corporation uses six decades of experience to create opportunities where they are needed most. Private sector financial development is essential to the promotion of successful and sustainable economies in low- and middle-income countries around the world. Sound and efficient financial markets can ensure that resources are allocated where they are most productive, assisting job creation and spurring economic growth.   IFC has embarked on an ambitious new growth strategy, the outcome of which will be to double our volume of business by 2030 and triple the work we do in Low Income Countries (LICs) and Fragile and Conflict affected States (FCS). To do so, IFC will need to deploy its full range of financing, mobilization, advisory, convening and thought leadership skills. This also calls for the need to generate our own opportunities by proactively working "Upstream" to create, deepen, and expand markets and opportunities for the private sector and to imagine, design and implement investment projects.
