About the IAS:

The mission of the International AIDS Society (IAS) is to lead collective action on every front of the global HIV response through its membership base, scientific authority, and convening power.

Founded in 1988, the IAS is the world’s largest association of HIV professionals, with members from more than 180 countries working on all fronts of the global AIDS response. Together, we advocate and drive urgent action to reduce the global impact of HIV.

The IAS is the steward of the world’s two most prestigious HIV conferences – the International AIDS Conference and the IAS Conference on HIV Science. These conferences have established a gold-standard meeting that convenes the world’s top scientists, civil society members and policymakers to jointly discuss the fight against HIV.

We promote and invest in HIV advocacy and research on key issue areas through our strategic programmes, initiatives, and campaigns that advocate for urgent action to reduce the global impact of HIV, including increased investment in HIV cure research; optimizing treatment and care for infants, children and adolescents with HIV in resource-limited settings; preventing and treating HIV-related co-infections; and expanding access to prevention, treatment and care for key populations at higher risk for HIV – such as men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sex workers and transgender individuals – including protecting their human rights by combatting punitive laws and discriminatory policies.

Duty Station : Geneva, Switzerland

Classification : Intern, Grade OTHE

Type of Appointment : Internship, Six months

Estimated Start Date : As soon as possible

Closing Date : 24 January 2019

Established in 1951, IOM is a Related Organization of the United Nations, and as the leading UN agency in the field of migration, works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.

Context:

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

The Migrant Protection and Assistance Division (MPA) has the institutional responsibility for overseeing policy and technical guidance in counter-trafficking and protection and assistance to migrants in vulnerable situations including migrant children, and in return and reintegration, counter-trafficking and protection and assistance to migrants in vulnerable situations including migrant children.

Since the mid-1990s, IOM and its partners have provided protection and assistance to close to

100,000 men, women and children who were trafficked for sexual and labour exploitation;

slavery or practices similar to slavery; servitude; or for organ removal.

IOM also collects data on human trafficking risks and associated forms of exploitation and abuse in situations of displacement, large-scale migration and in various development settings.

Timely, reliable, disaggregated data and contextual information related to populations on the move across the Mediterranean routes to Europe is imperative to a well-informed, well-managed, humane and collective response.

To support various global processes, there are calls for stronger and more comprehensive data, analysis and actionable information to ensure that vulnerable groups, including migrants, are not “left behind”. In a context like the Mediterranean routes to Europe – where migration flows result from reasons as diverse as conflict, violence, human rights violations, fragile economies, poor governance and unstable environments, and spill over within and outside of countries, regions and continents – it is important to enhance collective understandings of drivers, routes and profiles to inform targeted protection measures, safe alternatives and effective responses.

  3. Assist with the development of methodologies and tools for data collection.

  5. Contribute to the production of media- and communications-friendly materials based on analysed data.

  6. Draft and produce publishing materials and presentations, in various data visualization formats.

  7. Perform such other duties as may be assigned.

Training Components and Learning Elements

The successful candidate will have a unique opportunity to interact with a team of experienced data management and research specialists in the field of migration, human trafficking and vulnerabilities of migrants/refugees/IDPs.
