Migration Consultant, African Union

Background:
Under the ongoing Cooperation between the government of the Federal Republic of Germany and the African Union, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has set up an Open Fund for Migration and Refugee Issues. Given the high political priority of the migration and refugee issues at the moment, the fund is intended to provide a flexible tool for the AUC to strengthen its coordination role in migration and refugee issues. Within the context of the migration challenges facing the African continent, and the prospects of reaping the benefits of a well- managed migration regime, the AUC has established the Division of Labour, Employment and Migration within the Department of Social Affairs which has the overall migration management responsibilities. The division works to promote the AU’s migration agenda, and provides support for the implementation of Member States’ policies in migration. The division further represents the African Union in relevant international fora, including the Migration and Mobility Dialogue, the Khartoum Process, the Horn of Africa Initiative as well as other initiatives. However, the Division’s capacity to execute its responsibilities is currently constrained due to staffing constraints.
Objective of the Consultancy:
The consultant will support the AUC, and particularly the Department for Social Affairs (DSA) in its day to day management of migration related activities. The objective of the consultancy is to enhance the capacity of the AUC to respond to the coordination needs in regards to migration on the continent.
