Guatemala: LGBT Assessment Consultant-GuatemalaClosing date: 2015-01-16Organization: mala Closing date: 16 Jan 2015 LGBT Assessment Consultant-GuatemalaLocation: Guatemala, Guatemala CityDivision: Program ManagementStatus: Consultant Position Number: 14:195 Project Description: The Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening (CEPPS) is a legal joint venture of three equal partners: the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES), the International Republican Institute (IRI), and the National Democratic Institute (NDI). CEPPS was created in 1995 to address the unique challenge of providing democracy assistance under a global cooperative agreement to a variety of local democratic institutions without creating conflicts of interest or undermining the independence and identity of local beneficiaries. This nontraditional partnership structure enables coordinated programming, while allowing each CEPPS Partner to use its individual institutional identity, expertise and network to support different components of the political process in a way that reinforces the distinct but complementary roles of local political actors. CEPPS’ collaborative approach draws on the strengths and resources of all of its partners and allows for joint assessments, rapid start-up, as well as a division of labor to maximize results, rather than utilizing the limited capacities of a single organization. The Consortium for Elections, and Political Process Strengthening (CEPPS) is implementing the Elections: More Inclusion, Less Violence Project. Overall, the project aims to institutionalize processes to mitigate the risks for political violence and illicit financing of electoral campaigns. The project also seeks to increase the participation of cisgender and transgender individuals in the electoral process.
