Job
Title:          Political Economy Analyst

Organization:  Democratic Governance Facility (DGF)

Duty Station:  Kampala,
Uganda

Reports to:       Head
of Facility

                                                  

About US:

The Democratic
Governance Facility (DGF) is a multi-donor funding mechanism aimed at
strengthening governance, promoting and protecting human rights, enhancing
access to justice, and improving accountability in Uganda by working with state
and non-state institutions at national, regional and district levels throughout
the country. It is funded by Austria, Denmark, European Union, Ireland, the
Netherlands, Norway and Sweden.

Job Purpose: Realizing
that the working environment of the DGF and its partners changes continuously,
the DGF has opted for an ongoing political economy analysis (PEA) to inform
learning processes and strategic programme adaptations at FMU, Steering
Committee and DGF Board levels. Although first steps have been taken in
implementing PEA and adaptive programming at the DGF, there is an established
need to strengthen the implementation of both, by creating a new position fully
focussed on driving political economy analysis as a basis for more systematic
and evidence-based adaptive programming. The main responsibility of the
political economy analyst is to look across the full breadth of the DGF’s work
to ensure that regular analysis on key issues is being produced which will
inform adaptations in programming under the three spheres and DGF dialogue with
the government.

Job Summary:  Reporting to the Head of Facility, the
Political Economy Analyst will work closely with the sphere teams, the
monitoring and evaluation specialists and the communication unit to collect and
analyse information from DGF partners, media and other stakeholders related to
democratic governance in Uganda at different administrative levels and in
different sectors. The incumbent will offer thorough analyses of the key
governance issues of interest to DGF, with a particular focus on thematic and
geographic areas where DGF is currently supporting partners to inform current
and potential new programming, making programming more realistic and effective.

Key Duties and Responsibilities:  

·       
Conduct
on-going analysis of information related to the root causes of weak democratic
governance in Uganda as obtained from DGF implementing partners and other
relevant data sources, resulting in recommendations for consideration in
programme review and organizational development.

·       
Providing
the FMU, SC and Board with a regular flow of analyses on key topics related to
the DGF’s mandate, focusing not only at the national level but at all
administrative levels.

·       
Build
and maintaining functional working relationships with key economic and
political actors in state, non-state partners and multi-national organizations

Qualifications, Skills and Experience:

·       
The
applicant must hold a graduate degree in a relevant subject e.g. Political
Science, Political Economy, Public Administration, Public Policy, International
Policy, Law, Social Science, Development Studies or related areas.

·       
At least
5 years of experience in democracy and governance programming.

·       
Five years
of expertise in collecting, analysing, and documenting PEA data and information
in different sectors and at different administrative levels.
