Project Manager – Promoting Tolerance and Respect for Diversity in Thailand

 

II. Job Purpose and Organizational Context

 

 

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Thailand, in collaboration with the Royal Thai Government and partners, has implemented projects to accelerate the development of the country for more than 50 years.

 

Since 2018, UNDP Thailand, within the framework of a Regional Programme titled ‘Preventing Violent Extremism through Promoting Tolerance and Respect for Diversity’ (Phase I), has been partnering with the Royal Thai Government as well as non-governmental actors on multiple initiatives linked to the following:

 

  1. Support establishment and empower networks of local authorities, NGO, CSOs, CBOs for public awareness and policy recommendations linked to promoting tolerance and embracing diversity
  2. Support policy-making on national policies and programmes to ensure they are inclusive and framed with a human rights and gender equality framework
  3. Strengthen capacities of local communities and young people to promote peace, human rights, tolerance and respect for diversity though innovative communications and small grants programme

 

The Regional Programme is now being extended in 2020 and beyond and will be focusing on the following 3 key pillars:

 

  1. Build the capacities of key actors in view of promoting social cohesion and community resilience, tolerance and respect for diversity
  2. Strengthen knowledge management through generating reliable data, trend analysis and targeted research to inform national policy making and programming
  3. Support the development of policy frameworks which promote tolerance and diversity through a “whole of society” approach

In the context of COVID 19, quarantine measures have led to large increases in time spent on-line and exposure to hate speech, disinformation and fake news, which potentially undermines social cohesion, trust in government institutions, and the social contract on which sustainable peace and development depends. This renewed phase of the programme in Thailand will focus on interventions mitigating these risks.

To continue the implementation of the above mentioned Programme, UNDP Thailand is looking for a Project Manager – Promoting Tolerance and Respect for Diversity in Thailand. He/she will work closely with government, civil society, academia, NGOs and donors. Under the overall guidance of the Deputy Resident Representative, the Project Manager will directly report to Programme Specialist/Team Leader of Democratic Governance and Social Advocacy Team. He/she will work closely with the project and operation team at UNDP Bangkok Regional Hub as well as collaborate with other UNDP project and programme teams within UNDP Thailand Office.
