    Job Role Overview 

     

    In the context of the Policy and Advocacy dimension under ARI’s Community-Based Social Protection Project, we are currently producing a vulnerability assessment of the livelihood situation of Syrian refugees in Jordan and Lebanon. The assessment is aiming to give a basis for developing evidence-based advocacy on the Promotion of Economic Rights of Syrians, towards eliminating barriers for employment of Syrians in host-governments, expanding the number of work-permits and fighting discrimination and exclusion of Syrians. Given that Syrian women are particularly subject to exclusion in the work-force, there is a strong focus on gender equality in the messaging of this project.  The campaign will utilize existing ARI advocacy platforms such as tools to push for Syrian’s rights and to mobilize youth networks, civil society, and other actors to take action. This interconnectedness is in accordance with our principles of actualizing policy change on the levels of policy, civil society, and democracy through empowerment, solidarity, and campaigning.

    Consequently, this project, in accordance with the aforementioned principles places Syrian and Jordanian women residing in Baalbeck & Jeb Jenin as the main drivers of actualizing change. They have organized themselves into twenty women’s circles to facilitate the processes related to accomplishing the following:

    • Community-based protection plan
    • Non- food items distribution
    • Women’s Rights awareness and campaigning
    • Women-led small businesses

    The component of the women-led small businesses contributes to the second objective of the project – improving the livelihood of both hosting and refugees communities through developing community based initiatives to be led by community center young leaders. ActionAid ARI is supporting women in Baalbeck & Jeb Jenin, who are leading the project, to start their own small businesses which will contribute to improve their livelihood.

    As an important part of the ongoing project, the researcher will be working closely with the women’s circles, who are leading the project in Baalbeck & Jeb Jenin. The purpose of the research is to identify market needs and opportunities in Baalbeck & Jeb Jenin and match these needs with the women’s existing skills, interests, and assets in order to support women-led small businesses.

    The researcher is expected to conduct a participatory research exploring market needs and opportunities in Baalbeck & Jeb Jenin and discuss the results with the women’s circles in both governorates.
