Accord 26 Nepal Project Issue Editor

Conciliation Resources is recruiting a consultant Issue Editor to work on the 26th project and publication in our Accord series. This will both learn from, and contribute to, practical efforts to advance peace and transition in Nepal.

The Issue Editor will need specialist knowledge of a range of peacebuilding initiatives in Nepal, including suggestions for potential contributors to describe these in an Accord publication, as well as being a strong writer with editorial experience. He/she will be able to draw out practical learning and recommendations from the applied research, in order to inform the development of strategic peacebuilding priorities for Nepal.

The Issue Editor will need good communication skills and be able to work with an editorial and publication team in Nepal and the UK. He/she will need to support authors who may not be experienced writers, helping them to express their ideas, describe their experiences and develop their analyses clearly and accurately. We are particularly interested to ensure the publication reflects a diversity of perspectives and experiences – Nepali and international; official and unofficial.

Significant parts of the project will be active and participatory, for example workshops and other forms of consultation. A key role for the Issue Editor is to work with the Accord team to negotiate and manage relationships in Nepal’s complex political, social and economic environment, as well as with authors and other contributors to the Accord Nepal project and publication.

The Issue Editor will work closely with the Accord team on a number of project activities and outputs, including the following:

  • Developing the project concept and publication structure
  • Contributing to an international Joint Analysis Workshop, bringing together a variety of stakeholders from a range of perspectives and disciplines to exchange experiences and help develop the project focus and added value
  • Commissioning and editing the main project publication – including 20-25 articles of first hand case studies of peacebuilding experiences, interviews and expert analyses (approximately 70,000 words)
  • Contributing to a Policy Learning Workshop to develop a Policy Brief of actionable recommendations drawn from the research, which accompanies the main publication
  • Advising on and participating in the implementation of an outreach strategy to disseminate and advocate project findings

The consultancy is for an estimated six months' work (approximately 130 days) spread over 18 months from late 2014.

The fee is a maximum of GBP£25,000, which should include any relevant sales or value added tax.

Interested applicants should send:

  • A CV of no more than two pages of A4, minimum 10 point font, outlining relevant experience – you can attach a bibliography as an appendix to your CV if useful
  • A supporting statement of no more than two pages, minimum 10 point font, explaining how you meet the brief as detailed in the Summary Terms of Reference, what you will bring to the role of Accord Issue Editor and why you are interested in it
  • A completed application exercise – see related documents
  •  Diversity Monitoring Form
