The Refugee Consortium of Kenya (RCK) is a national non-governmental organisation established in 1998. RCK’s mission is to promote and protect the rights and dignity of refugees, asylum seekers, IDPs, and other forced migrants in Kenya and the wider East African region. It was established as a response to an increasingly complex and deteriorating refugee situation in Kenya and the region. RCK’s core mandate is to: provide legal aid services and psycho-social counselling; engage in advocacy for policy change by providing technical support towards development of relevant legislations in line with international instruments regulating the management of refugees and other forced migrants; and to raise awareness regarding the plight and rights of the vulnerable groups through research and information dissemination.
The GIZ Civil Peace Service (CPS) is a global programme for the prevention of violence and peacebuilding in crisis- and conflict-affected regions. It deploys international and national Peace Building Advisors to strengthen the capacities of non-governmental and governmental organisations in the field of conflict sensitivity and conflict transformation. CPS methods for transforming conflicts are dialogue processes, mental health and psycho-social support, as well as peace-journalism, hate speech monitoring and the support of alternative dispute mechanisms. GIZ-CPS works with inclusive and participatory approaches.
RCK together with its partner the GIZ-CPS Programme are looking for a lead consultant and research assistant to conduct a conflict analysis in Kuresoi Sub-County (Kuresoi North and Kuresoi South). Contextually, conflict assessment is a critical first step to sustain peace through conflict transformation approach, to inform more comprehensive and coherent strategies, political engagement, and creation of interventions in a conflict-sensitive way. It provides insights into the causes and consequences of conflict, the dynamics supporting or undermining peace efforts, and the needs and interests of diverse stakeholders. Hence, it will serve to inform the continued work of the programme with its partner RCK.
