2. ECCN is seeking an expert in education and countering violent extremism
to prepare a Guidance Note for USAID. Building off the work of the INEE Education Policy Working Group
and UNESCO’s Preventing Violent Extremism through Education
, the consultant will develop a USAID-Specific Guidance note to:
a) frame Agency definitions and work streams related to the objective of countering violent extremism that maps the Agency’s work in CVE, Resilience, CMM, DRG, Fragility Working Group and D-ISIS;
b) guide USAID staff and partners on key principles for education programs in reducing or preventing violent extremism;
c) describe evidence-based interventions that may contribute to a reduction in propensity towards violent extremism.
This note will situate guidance within USAID’s and the US government’s policies and operational guidance on CVE and education, including the USAID Education Strategy. This guidance note will be developed with support from an expert advisory/review panel consisting of 3-4 US government staff identified by USAID. More information can be found on the ECCN website
