Recruiting Evaluation Consultants

PAX’s Protection of Civilians (PoC) team is seeking a qualified team to conduct a midterm evaluation of its PoC Program (2019-2023). The evaluation should take place between December 2021 and March 2022 and will involve fieldwork in both Iraq and South Sudan, COVID-19 conditions allowing. We will accept applications on a rolling basis until 3 December.

PAX’s PoC Program was established in 2016 and expanded in 2019 in partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA). The overall goal of our work is to improve the security of civilian populations living in conflict through making protection interventions more responsive, relevant, and inclusive. We work in close collaboration with local partners and communities  to  identify  the  most  pressing  security  needs  at  the grassroots level and communicate these with relevant stakeholders nationally and internationally through advocacy, expert events, and published analyses. We also work directly with security providers at various levels to enable them to implement more informed and civilian-centered protection strategies through practical training and technical assistance.


This midterm evaluation is intended to facilitate deep reflection about progress towards intended results at this midpoint of the program, and to inform potential course corrections in the remaining two years of the grant. The evaluation will also feed into future program design and fundraising processes. Please note that our goal with this evaluation is less about generating a detailed accounting of our program’s results to date, and more to facilitate participatory and engaged learning from within our staff, partners, and other key stakeholders.


Please review the full Evaluation Terms of Reference (ToR) for more details and information on how to apply.
