Are you interested in developments in North Africa, the EU’s neighbourhood policy and migration? We are looking for an Arabic-speaking junior policy officer with experience and expertise related to the North Africa region to strengthen our team in Maastricht.
The European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) is a leading independent think tank that wants to make policies in Europe and Africa work for inclusive and sustainable development. We have two offices: in Maastricht (the Netherlands) and Brussels (Belgium).
Our more than 60 staff members from over 25 countries worldwide provide independent research, advice and operational support to policymakers, advisors and practitioners in Europe, Africa and beyond. Our focus is on EU foreign policy and policies related to conflict, migration, governance, sustainable food systems, regional integration, business, finance and trade.
In the past years, ECDPM expanded its work in North Africa. This reflects the growing prominence of the region in EU external action from a geopolitical, stability and security perspective as well as regarding the question of migration. We are interested in political, economic and institutional reform dynamics within the various countries of the region and in their evolving relations with the European Union. We explore ways and means to promote more integrated approaches to migration – beyond EU-driven security concerns.
You are based in our Maastricht office and will primarily be part of the migration team.
