The European Partnership for Democracy (EPD) is recruiting a Senior Strategic Advisor for the EU funded “Project in Support of Sustainable Media Sector Reform for Elections-related Conflict Prevention in Kyrgyzstan”. The successful candidate will advise key project staff, in particular the Project Manager based in Bishkek and the Quality Control and Technical Advisor based in Berlin, on media support strategies and project activities focusing on media professionalisation and economic independence.
The project aims to strengthen the capacity and responsibility of media actors to operate as drivers of democracy and to prevent potential conflicts during the 2020 parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan. It follows two parallel pathways towards achieving this goal: improving the policy and legal environment affecting the media sector, consistent with international freedom of expression standards; and assisting media actors in playing a role of democratic watchdogs during the 2020 electoral cycle.
