MIDDLE EAST/NORTH AFRICA DIRECTOR
This position sits in the International Programs Division of Freedom House, a non-governmental organization dedicated to the promotion of democracy and human rights around the world. The position, which oversees a small team of staff, is responsible for providing strategic leadership and vision for all Freedom House activities in and related to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), first and foremost on the ground programming, but also policy research and advocacy in line with the organization’s mission and strategic framework.
The position requires a candidate with deep knowledge of democracy and governance issues throughout the region including Iran, relationships there (including with civil society organizations (CSOs), government entities, the diplomatic community, etc.), and relationships with relevant USG executive and congressional branch entities (including USG donors supporting democracy programs in the region). These qualifications must be combined with a proven record of: designing and carrying out successful policy research and policy advocacy initiatives before the U.S. Congress and executive branch; designing and implementing innovative USG-funded democracy programming throughout the region that produce verifiable results; and effectively leading and managing diverse staff, including overseas operations.
The position is based in Freedom House’s Washington, DC office and cannot be performed remotely. Up to 20 percent of the director’s time will be spent traveling to the MENA region.
