Research and tasks description 

As part of EuroMed Rights Gender Mainstreaming (GM) efforts, each Programme is expected to conduct a gender analysis. EuroMed Rights understands a gender analysis as a critical examination of how differences in gender roles and social norms, activities, needs, opportunities, access to resources, and rights affect differently men, women, girls and boys in a certain context.  

For this purpose, the Migration and Asylum Programme is looking for a researcher with expertise in the field of gender and migration, to conduct a gender analysis of migration-related issues by the end of the year.   

As a network aiming to promote democracy, human rights and freedom of movement on both shores of the Mediterranean, and with a focus on the analysis of the impact of European policies in the Southern Mediterranean, a key focus of the Migration and Asylum Programme is the analysis of European policies of externalisation of migration and border control to the southern shore of the Mediterranean.  

Externalisation policies are not usually talked about from a gender perspective. However, every policy has a differentiated gender impact, and the objective of this gender analysis is to bring forwards the different layers and intersections of how externalisation policies have a gendered impact on migratory movements in the Euro-Mediterranean region, and what the coping mechanisms adopted by people on the move are.  


The final output of the consultancy will be to produce a research report (approximately 20 pages).  

The Consultant, in collaboration with EuroMed Rights’ Migration and Asylum team will be responsible for developing a research methodology, including first-hand and secondary data collection (desk research and interviews with experts and members of EuroMed Rights’ network); preparing a first draft of the report and adapting it based on the revision and feedback received; and submitting the final version of the report.
