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.

Aviation Security Officer - P3

Chad, Borkou-Ennedi-Tibesti, N'djamena - world food programme

WFP seeks candidates of the highest integrity and professionalism who share our humanitarian principles.  Selection of staff is made on a competitive basis, and we are committed to promoting diversity and gender balance.   ABOUT WFP   The United Nations World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide.  The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes.  Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.   ORGANIZATIONAL CONTEXT   These roles are likely to be found in Headquarters (HQ) or Country Offices (COs). In HQ, job holders report to the Chief of Aviation or designate. At the CO, the job holder reports to the Chief Air Transport Officer ? CATO or as designated by the Country Director.  Job holders are likely to be operating in a single location of aviation operations or support an AVSEC officer/WFP Field Security Officer in a complex operational context where the aviation security risk in meeting food assistance needs is moderate to high. The incumbent may focus on a single workstream or including tasking to support the relevant air operation (e.g. aviation screening systems, cargo, training etc...)  The AVSEC Officer will collaborate and work in partnership with international and national aviation partners, NGOs, and civil aviation authorities to enhance aviation security outcomes and solutions for the area of assignment. He/she will work closely with both aviation staff and WFP field security teams.  As such, the job holder is expected to have solid knowledge and experience in Aviation and field security settings with complementary coordination skills.   COUNTRY CONTEXTS   These positions are based in South Sudan, Somalia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Chad.   South Sudan   South Sudan is a landlocked country, with limited infrastructure. Security and AVSEC measures are not properly implemented. Surface transport is extremely dangerous and allows only limited access. Aviation has an important role to play in South Sudanese humanitarian operations, especially because traveling overland is difficult or impossible due to the security situation and the damaged infrastructure.   Somalia   Somalia is currently the epicenter of instability in the East and Horn of Africa regions. The conflict in the country has resulted in a high threat, volatile and high-risk environment that has made any form of land-based travel extremely dangerous, with deteriorated road transport infrastructure and no rail. In the absence of alternate land-based transport, the humanitarian community relies almost exclusively on air transport by UNHAS as the sole means of access to difficult-to-reach areas in Somalia to carry out their mandates in their respective thematic areas of interventions. Establishing and maintaining a regimen to protect UNHAS operations and sufficiently mitigate Aviation Security (AVSEC) risks to a level that allows continued UNHAS operations in the country requires an appropriately qualified and sufficiently experienced AVSEC officer.   Democratic Republic of Congo   Goma, DRC, the main operations centre of UNHAS DRC. DRC is very challenging in terms of conflict and insecurity. This is particularly true in the Eastern side of the country, where clashes and violent demonstrations make the delivery of humanitarian services more than complex. During these critical times, UNHAS flights have become more crucial to evacuate humanitarian actors for security or medical reasons, or to provide air transportation for the Ebola response team enabling their mobility. In the current country's context, the position of the aviation security officer is of paramount importance to mitigate aviation security risks for the safety of operations.    Chad   The common Chadian border with the Central African Republic is still a serious security concern to the government due to the CAR conflict and criminality in the villages near the border. Furthermore, the shared border with Sudan remains a focus of worry due to the permanent presence of armed factions hostile to the Chadian government.   JOB PURPOSE   Support aviation management in AVSEC-related matters including planning of projects, operational risk management and measures for effective delivery of the aviation security programme for WFP personnel, clients, other stakeholders and facilities.  The role will also support WFP's aviation mission to attain efficient, cost-effective and reliable access to locations in need of humanitarian assistance through guidance and support to the aviation operation across the region or to the project in countries with medium or high risk aviation environments (including conflict or post conflict areas).   KEY ACCOUNTABILITIES (not all-inclusive)   - Support the development of standard AVSEC operating procedures across the area which encompasses WFP global aviation policies and tools; thus, ensuring that aviation objectives are accomplished in compliance with WFP, UN AVSTADS and ICAO's Standards and Recommended Practices (ICAO/SARPS).  - Be accountable to the CATO for the AVSEC component of the aviation operations within the area of assignment, ensuring that all required AVSEC / WFP security measures, systems and programmes are in established and aligned.  - Establish and sustain AVSEC partnerships with key entities in the area such as governments, NGOs, private sector organizations and UN agencies to facilitate coordinated, suitable and sustainable AVSEC measures for the operation.  - Participate in regular forums with aviation partners, staff and crews on prevailing AVSEC mission priorities and identify threats in the area and provide guidance on the management of such threats in operational context. - Coordinate, participate and support AVSEC assessment missions, test, verification, evaluations, audits and other activities as may be applicable to the mission for internal and external partners/parties.  - Support preparedness actions by providing technical guidance and monitoring the management of specific aviation risks to enable WFP to efficiently provide passenger services, relief supplies and emergency medical and security evacuations at the onset of a crisis. - In coordination with WFP Security, identify potential AVSEC or other security-related training and staff development opportunities as required to build and develop the overall capabilities of WFP staff and external partner's ability to support the field operations.  - Maintain and support the internal quality control system and ensure that all relevant records are retained as required.  - Collate, collect, develop, analyze and oversee reporting on disseminate information/intelligence on AVSEC occurrences, hazards and other related AVSEC matters - e.g. AVSEC risk assessment/incident reports that enable informed decision making and consistency of information which is presented to the senior aviation officer.  - Take responsibility for incorporating gender perspectives in all areas of work, to ensure equal participation of women and men in AVSEC roles, duties and tasks.   - Act in an assigned emergency response capacity as required to meet emergency food assistance needs. - Other relevant duties as required.   STANDARD MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS   Education:  Advanced University degree in AVSEC Management and/or Aviation Management, plus hold the ICAO AVSEC Professional Management diploma.   Security Management, International Relations or Law Enforcement or other relevant field, or First University degree with additional years of related aviation work experience and/or training/courses.  A diploma obtained from Military/Police Academy or relevant diploma in ICAO Aviation Security from a recognized institution with Aviation risk management or aviation security training may be accepted in lieu of the First University degree.   Experience:   05 years or more of progressively responsible professional experience in aviation security management (relevant military, policy or corporate) and/or security risk management, with a background and interest in international humanitarian development.    Language:  -
