Cities Alliance is prioritising migration as one of four thematic areas in its 2018-2021 Strategic Plan. To lead this new work on migration which is predicated on a positive view that links migration to development and cities, the Cities Alliance will convene a Joint Work Programme on Migration and Cities. Joint Work Programmes are Cities Alliance Members’ working groups for carrying out analytic and strategic activities designed to tackle major global policy challenges affecting cities and sustainable development. JWPs are multi-year activities and are directly facilitated by the Cities Alliance Secretariat. The JWPs act as a coordination and harmonisation platform among diverse institutions, a knowledge hub to share information and sector experiences, a think tank able to support diagnostics and evidence-based policy recommendations, and to collectively advocate common messages.
The JWP on Migration and Cities is expected to inspire new and reinvigorated global thinking on the role and potential of cities in managing and seizing the opportunities and contributions arising from migration, and how that will interact with, and impact, urban programming over the long-term.
Cities Alliance is seeking a highly motivated and skilled Senior Specialist of international stature to profile Cities Alliance work on migration. The Senior Specialist will be expected to develop and lead this work programme which is multi-disciplinary in nature and which will require managing diverse stakeholder perspectives and expectations, according to a strict timeframe and budget.The Senior Specialist will work under the supervision and guidance of the Cities Alliance Head of Programmes.
