Programme Officer on Economic and Environmental Justice, IWRAW Asia-Pacific

    Apply by: May 13, 2022
    Organization: The International Women's Rights Action Watch (IWRAW) Asia-Pacific
    Location: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

    The International Women’s Rights Action Watch (IWRAW) Asia-Pacific is hiring Programme Officer for Economic and Environmental Justice. The Programme Officer will support the IWRAW Asia-Pacific team with the implementation of two projects under TrEAD: the Gender Equality and Macroeconomics Project, coordinated by the Bretton Woods Project and funded by the Hewlett Foundation; and a Ford Plus Grant project, entitled Towards a Global Financial System that Advances a Rights-Based Economy. We are also interested in strengthening connections between the TrEAD and Environmental Justice programmes, with the specific direction of this cross-programme work led by the requests and inputs of our partners on the frontlines of environmental degradation and climate change.

    Both programmes work with the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) as a tool to advance feminist policy alternatives, strengthen State accountability for detrimental impacts of conventional macroeconomics policies and climate change on women’s human rights, and as an advocacy for women to claim their rights and shape international human rights standards.

The successful candidate would preferably be available to start by early June 2022, with flexibility available for personal circumstances.

    We look forward to hearing from applicants from regions under-represented in the team, particularly the Pacific, Africa, West Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean, and from gender minorities and other marginalised groups.
