ABOUT THE ROLE:
The role is based together with the rest of the North Africa team in Amnesty International’s Tunis office. As a research-based campaigning organization, investigating and documenting human rights issues is fundamental to our advocacy and lobbying work. The MENA Regional Office requires researchers to take the lead in initiating human rights research and action by providing regional and thematic expertise, excellent research and report-writing skills and sound political judgement. A campaign oriented approach to your work is essential. You’ll be required to conduct research activities, monitor, investigate and analyse political, legal and social developments and human rights conditions, give authoritative advice on these areas and write reports and human rights action materials.
With experience of working on human rights issues, you’ll have first-hand in-depth knowledge and experience of Tunisia, and an understanding and awareness of the economic and social rights as well as civil and political. You’ll have a background in activism, academia, law or journalism with the ability to identify and thoroughly investigate those issues and ensure our voice has authority. You’ll need proven research and communication skills, impartial political judgement, coupled with strong strategic thought. Fluency in English, French and Arabic, including excellent spoken, reading and writing skills, is essential.
Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. We reach almost every country in the world and have:
- more than 2 million members and supporters who drive forward our fight for rights
- more than 5 million activists who strengthen our calls for justice
Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, fairness, freedom and truth wherever they’re denied. And whether we’re applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we’re all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.
At Amnesty International, we are passionate about what we do and we are proud of our achievements as a movement. To compensate our employees for the critical work they do, we reward them through a combination of an attractive and sector competitive salary and benefits package, high levels of engagement and involvement, and a commitment to employee development.
