Closing date: 18 Apr 2019
Position Title : Consultant – Migration Policy
Duty Station : Geneva, Switzerland
Classification : Consultant, Grade OTHE
Type of Appointment : Consultant, Six months
Estimated Start Date : As soon as possible
Closing Date : 18 April 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.
In 2015, IOM developed a Migration Governance Framework (MiGOF) to help define what “well-managed migration policy” might look like at the national level. The MiGOF was welcomed by IOM’s Member States the same year. The Migration Governance Indicators (MGI) were developed to assess national frameworks, and help to operationalize the MiGOF.
The MGI is a tool based on policy inputs that helps countries assess the comprehensiveness of their migration policies and identify gaps and areas that could be strengthened. In addition, the MGI aims to advance conversations on migration governance by clarifying what “well-governed migration” might look like in the context of SDG Target 10.7.
Since 2016, 50 countries have conducted assessments of their migration policies using the Migration Governance Indicators (MGI). The MGI has proven to be an effective tool to identify good practices and gaps in migration governance, and IOM is now developing a systematic way of helping governments address those gaps, and track progress on this endeavour through Migration Governance Roadmaps (MGRs).
The MGRs will help governments to: 1) formulate their own priorities, 2) set high level goals to be achieved, 3) address gaps identified through the MGI assessment. Concretely, the MGRs will provide governments and IOM staff with a list of concrete steps to design a specific policy (e.g. counter-trafficking policy) or to incorporate migration into an existing one (e.g. mainstream migration into the health policy). These concrete steps will be developed in cooperation with IOM thematic specialists.
The Migration Policy Consultant will work under the direct supervision of David Martineau, Migration Policy Officer, International Cooperation and Partnerships (ICP), and overall supervision of Maurizio Busatti, Head of MPD, ICP, and in close cooperation with colleagues in Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC), ICP, Department of Migration Management (DMM) and Department of Operations and Emergencies (DOE).
Under the direct supervision of the Migration Policy Officer, ICP, and overall supervision of the
Head of MPD, ICP, the Migration Policy Consultant will draft the Migration Governance
Roadmaps (MGR), a systematic evidence-based approach to assist governments wishing to address and track progress on gaps identified through the MGI. This work will be closely coordinated with all relevant divisions in IOM-HQ, most particularly as it relates to the work on the Essentials of Migration Management (EMM) and “Developing an institutional approach and methodology to capacity development on migration management” (DIAM).
