Democracy Fellow, International LGBTI Human Rights

Democracy Fellow, International LGBTI Human Rights 
The Institute of International Education (IIE) seeks applications from qualified individuals for a part-time Democracy Fellow position to evaluate four activities designed to protect and promote the human rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex (LGBTI) persons. These activities were funded by the Human Rights Grants Program (HRGP) of the Center of Excellence on Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance (DRG Center) at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). IIE manages the Democracy Fellows and Grants Program (DFG) for USAID. The level of effort for this fellowship is 130 days. The period of performance is flexible, with the draft evaluation due in September 2016 and the final evaluation due in December 2016. The Fellow will be hired as an IIE consultant and will work remotely. 
The Democracy Fellow will conduct a post hoc program evaluation of HRGP activities in Cameroon, Kosovo, Cote D’Ivoire, and Nicaragua. The research will involve synthesizing these data with those already collected on 5-10 other cases where HRGP funding supported LGBTI human rights. The goal of the evaluation is to assess the effects these grants had on LGBTI human rights in the selected countries, and to provide recommendations for improving USAID’s LGBTI human rights programming.
The HRGP’s core objective is to integrate human rights programs into USAID missions’ broader development portfolio. It provides assistance to support activities that respond to urgent or unanticipated human rights challenges or emerging windows of opportunity in the protection and promotion of human rights (including LGBTI rights), while building the capacity of local human rights groups and actors to respond to these challenges.
Scope of Work
The evaluation task will involve several different activities: preliminary desk research reviewing information about the human rights situation in each country, USAID programming in that country, and the HRGP activities being evaluated; key informant interviews (by phone or in person) in each country, including USAID Mission staff, HRGP beneficiaries, and members of the local LGBTI and human rights community, if possible; analysis that includes a synthesis of existing research notes with the Fellow’s notes; and writing up a final report that provides brief program-specific evaluations as well as an overall review and recommendations based on these four cases and previous case studies. The Fellow will be expected to build on the evaluation design and instruments already developed by USAID staff in order to ensure comparability across cases.
Required Qualifications
•     Ability to work remotely.
•     Ability to travel internationally, up to 28 days.
?     An MA degree (PhD preferable) in evaluation or another social science, with methodology coursework in qualitative research, interview, and/or case study methods.
?     Three or more years’ experience in program evaluation and/or qualitative field research.
?     Knowledge of international human rights issues.
?     Awareness of and sensitivity to the issues surrounding research with LGBTI organizations in countries where LGBTI security is problematic.
?     Demonstrated past experience in one or more of the case study countries preferred.
?     French and/or Spanish language proficiency preferred. 
Supervision and Guidance 
The Fellow will be an IIE consultant and will report for administrative purposes to the DFG Director. Daily technical guidance will be provided by a DRG Center representative.
The Fellow may be located anywhere globally but must be available for Skype/phone calls with USAID personnel in Washington, DC, during normal working hours in that location. 
Duration of the position
130 days, with the interim evaluation due September 2016 and the final evaluation due December 2016.
The daily rate for this fellowship will be competitive and commensurate with the candidate’s salary/rate history and experience. 
The deadline for applications is 11.59 pm EST on Monday, February 15, 2016. Only complete applications will be considered.
