|Overview : |
The United Nations Liaison Office for Peace and Security (UNLOPS) was established in 2011 in Brussels to further enhance the United Nations’ (UN) partnership with the European Union (EU), NATO, and other organizations in Brussels on political affairs, peacekeeping, crisis management, conflict prevention and mediation. UNLOPS formally represents and liaises with the EU and other organizations in Brussels on behalf of the Department of Peace Operations (DPO), the Department of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs (DPPA), the Department of Operational Support (DOS) and the UN Office for Counter Terrorism (UNOCT).
The UN Transition Project – an innovative partnership between DPO, DPPA, DCO, and UNDP – has been established in 2014 to ensure UN transitions are planned and managed in a proactive, integrated and forward-looking to enhance the prospects of countries to sustain peace and achieve long-term development. The project is widely recognized as a key mechanism providing thought leadership and system-wide support on ways to address transition challenges resulting from the drawdown and withdrawal of UN missions.
Under the daily supervision of the Head of the UN Liaison Office for Peace and Security in Brussels and strategic direction from the UN Transition Project and the Policy, Evaluation and Training Division of the Department of Peace Operations, the consultant will work in close collaboration with UNDP to provide specialized support to enhance partnership on transitions between the UN and the EU as set out in the UN-EU joint strategic partnership document on peace operations and crisis management that spans the period 2019-21.
This specialized support will be required for a 6-month period in order to respond to new areas of work outlined below and building on phase 1 of this project.
