Regional Communications Program Officer

Position Announcement: Regional Communications Program Officer
 

The Asia Foundation’s regional peace and transitions team seeks a skilled, confident and enthusiastic specialist to play a vital role in our regional programs for the Asia-Pacific region. The Asia Foundation is an international development organization committed to the development of a peaceful, prosperous, just, and open Asia-Pacific region.

The Asia Foundation’s regional peace and transitions team supports effective programming across South and Southeast Asia. Alongside our country offices across the region, the team is addressing the root causes of instability through locally grounded and context-driven efforts to improve governance, targeted support for peacebuilding, policy analysis, and concerted efforts to reduce gender-based violence. Emphasis is placed across programs on partnering with domestic institutions and building better understanding of how violence can be addressed.

The regional peace and transitions program has a strong policy research element and places increasing emphasis on communications as a core part of its work. Priority is given to ensuring that research findings are used by policymakers and others, building networks of specialists, and ensuring that initiatives achieve a strong, positive impact. Some of its programs work directly with social media and seek to reduce online conflict risks; other work focuses on research and analysis which needs to be disseminated online.

The Communications Project Officer will work as part of a team and interact with other organizations across the region. An initial 2-year contract will be offered. This post is expected to be based in Bangkok; applicants need Thai nationality or eligibility to work in Thailand.

Please send a cover letter with your resume by email to: poonsook.pantitanonta@asiafoundation.org by February 21, 2021 (Only short-listed candidates will be notified.)
