The IFLRY Human Rights programme is looking for a new Programme Manager to steer it through a successful 2015. As one of IFLRYs programmes, the HR-team focuses on the issue of human rights in connection to liberal youth politics. IFLRY can be a platform to advance the human rights position of young people in the world, by promoting and campaigning for those youth issues to which liberalism combined with human rights can really make a difference.

This means:

  • Developing ideas and tools for Member Organizations to incorporate the human-rights-based approach in their policies

  • Examining concrete cases of Human Right violations and proposing ideas towards ending those violations

  • Tracking cases of young political activists whose Human Rights have been denied, up until being persecuted for what they stand for.

What we expect:

  • A committed team leader with the ability to come up with concrete actions, as well as seeing these actions through with the team

  • Some knowledge about the topic, especially about the human-rights based approach towards liberal youth, is expected. Specific knowledge about certain (geographical) regions or certain specific Human Rights is welcome as well.

  • Theability to dedicate a several hours per week to the Programme development including the co-ordinating regular Skype meetings with the team.

  • You have to be an individual member of an IFLRY member organization
