Description

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international humanitarian aid organization that provides assistance in more than 60 countries to populations in distress, to victims of natural or manmade disasters and to victims of armed conflicts, without discrimination and irrespective of origin, religion, creed or political affiliation. To develop this work, the Operations Department is looking for a:
 

Head of Mission Belgium (m/f/x)

CONTEXT

 

BACKGROUND

  1. Migrants/asylum seekers
    1. Mental health support in reception centers

After the unprecedent arrival of asylum seekers in Europe in 2015, MSF decided to start projects for migrants/asylum seekers in countries of arrival based on the fact that MSF is present in the majority of the countries of origin (Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq….) and also along the road (Greece, Balkan…). Mental health was identified as an important gap all along the journey of asylum seekers included in host countries. MSF set up a pilot project in Sweden and after in Belgium in 3 reception centers (Roeselare, Charleroi, Jumet) with the objective to define a model for psychological first aid that could be endorsed by different actors.

The aim of the model has been to show that by intervening at an early stage, with not only specialized mental health staff, the mental health for asylum seekers and refugees can improve and reduce the burden of the primary and secondary health care. The activities currently consist of screening for mental health problems, and offering low threshold activities such as Psychological First Aid (PFA), Psychoeducation, Health Promotion, Group interventions and Individual counseling sessions (e.g. mental health assessment interview before referral

 

After end of the project ends a further advocacy follow-up will need to be guaranteed. A tool box based on the experience in the different reception centers is to be written. After validation, a strategy on how to share this tool box with different actors is to be designed.  The strategy could include workshops, on the spot coaching. 

 

    1. Mental health support for migrants in transit

Humanitarian HUB

 

Since September 2017 a stable number of +/- 700 irregular migrants group is in Brussels. Most are waiting to cross to the UK. Although we are dealing with a circular population, the demographics of the people in Brussels stay more or less the same. Most of the people come from Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq.

They are all left without any assistance of the Belgian authorities. These people are in need of shelter, food, medical and psychosocial care and access to objective information about asylum procedures and their rights.

Several Belgian NGO's and civil society actors have put their efforts together and are providing a series of humanitarian services in a common project, the humanitarian HUB, with the objective of responding in a comprehensive manner to the needs of these people. The HUB offers medical care, mental health care, family tracing services, clothes distribution, social and legal assistance, and phone charging and phone call possibilities. Médecins Sans Frontières is providing mental health care in this set-up and participates actively in the management of the project.

 

It is important to note that there are common objectives discussed and decided upon between the different partners of the project. On top of that every organization has other objectives more specific to the field of work that they perform within the common project.

 

All partners in the HUB agreed upon following set of objectives:

• Respond in an integrated way to the needs of migrants and refugees in transit

• Develop a model of intervention that could be duplicated in other cities or areas that face a similar transiting migrant population

• Develop a model of intervention that could be taken over by the Belgian authorities.

• Facilitate the mobilization of civil solidarity towards the most vulnerable migrant population

 

Who are the partners?

• Legal advice: Plateforme Citoyenne with support from Ciré and Vluchtelingewerk

• Medical consultations: Médecins Du Monde

• Mental health: MSF

• Non Food: Plateforme Citoyenne

• Family link tracing and overseas phone calls: Red Cross

• Social services: Plateforme Citoyenne /SOS jeunes

 

Second line clinic for mental health support

At the HUB, the mental health support is dedicated to psychological first aid but as in a certain amount of cases the need for more comprehensive care was observed by the team, MSF decided in 2019 to set up a clinic in an autonomous place to start follow up mental health consultations when needed.

 

COVID outbreak

Th outbreak started in Belgium in February/March 2020.  In Belgium, the health system is of course very well developed, but it has little experience with large-scale outbreaks of infectious diseases. Outbreaks such as that of Covid-19 ask for adaptations in the use of protective equipment, triage, patient flow and staff flow. This is the expertise MSF can share with its colleagues in Belgian health facilities, based on decades of experience with outbreaks management including for Ebola, measles and cholera.

During the first wave MSF decided to work on 3 pillars:

  1. Support to shelters for homeless /migrants with outreach teams to deliver health promotion messages, to provide infection control advices, to give ad hoc material when needed. Set up a center where homeless /migrants with COVID symptoms could be confined and received a proper follow-up.
  2. Support to nursing homes to help them with implementation of infection control measures, reorganization of the structure according when needed, the care of suspected cases, psychological support to the staff.
  3. Support to some hospitals in emergency rooms, ICU, post ICU services with patients flow, infection control measures, donation of material, training

Advocacy was done all along the response at different level regional, federal with a huge focus on the lessons learnt for the nursing homes.

 

Since July an increase of the number of COVID cases is observed, MSF decided to restart an outreach team to continue a support to the shelters for migrants/homeless, an outreach team to support the nursing homes and to start in Antwerpen some contact tracing activities in collaboration with the local actors.

As a rights-based global organisation we seek to have inclusive representation on the International Council. Thus, people with diverse backgrounds, particularly from the Global South, are encouraged to apply.

We are especially keen to hear from individuals with the above experiences. Individuals with English and Spanish language skills are preferred.

 

1. Organisational overview

Peace Brigades International (PBI) is a non-governmental organisation, which protects human rights and promotes nonviolent conflict transformation. PBI provides protection for threatened human rights defenders and displaced communities striving to promote social justice and human rights in areas of violent conflict.

PBI currently has field operations in Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, Indonesia, Mexico, Nepal and Nicaragua. PBI project work is supported by an international coordinating office based in Brussels and a network of 13 country groups, who carry out volunteer recruitment and support, advocacy and fundraising. PBI uses a non-hierarchical model of organising and decisions are taken by consensus. For further information see www.peacebrigades.org.

The highest decision-making body of PBI is the General Assembly (GA), made up of volunteers and staff from across PBI, including a representative of the IC. The GA meets every three years and makes key strategic decisions. The next GA will be in May 2021.

Between General Assemblies, key decision-making bodies of PBI are:

  • The International Council (IC), which is made up of independent board members appointed by the General Assembly and is responsible for governance;
  • The International Operations Council (IOC), which consists of staff from across PBI and is responsible for operational oversight.

Both councils meet annually face to face and monthly by conference call. They are supported by staff at PBI’s International Office (IO) and by committees and working groups whose members have specialist expertise and responsibility for particular areas of governance and operations.

The IC is the oversight entity for the whole organisation and legally responsible for the operations of the International Secretariat (ISEC) and projects. However, many of the responsibilities of the IC are delegated to the IOC, IO, committees, working groups and projects.

The key functions of the IC are to ensure the following:

  • That the conduct and activities of PBI are consistent with and advance PBI's mission, norms, and strategic directions given by the GA
  • That PBI fulfills its internal and external legal and ethical obligations
  • That an organisational structure is in place to carry out the strategic oversight, management and
  • operations of PBI
  • That global plans are developed based on consultation with all PBI entities and presented to the GA for decision
  • That mechanisms are in place to monitor and evaluate strategic and operational plans and budgets
  • That all entities have budgets, financial management and operational plans in place and that they are regularly monitored
  • That policies and procedures are in place and monitored to comply with legal and ethical responsibilities for ISEC and project staff and volunteers

 

2. Legal structure

PBI was registered in 1982 as a non-profit corporation in the State of Washington, USA. Our 501(c)(3) registration number there is 91-1179750. All IC members are directors of the PBI non-profit corporation registered in the State of Washington, USA and directors of the PBI foreign company registered in the United Kingdom.

While all the projects are incorporated in the countries in which they operate, they are part of the legal structure and the governance of the international organization.

PBI has 13 legally separate country groups in Europe, the Americas and Australia who undertake volunteer recruitment and support, advocacy and fundraising to play an integral role in meeting the aims and objectives of the global organisation.

 

3. IC conference calls and meetings

The IC meets monthly by conference call. In addition there is an annual face to face (FTF) meeting lasting four days. It is expected that all IC members make necessary arrangements to attend this meeting. The next meeting will be the joint council meeting held the 24-27 October 2020 online.

 

4. Why be a member of the International Council?

Past and current members of PBI’s IC will not deny that being on the IC is sometimes intense and occasionally demanding, as anyone who works in human rights would understand. However, the IC is also a space filled with intellectual stimulation and meaningful debate with worldly and engaged colleagues. It is a special opportunity to be part of the decision-making that manages the present and helps shape the future of a global human rights and peace building organisation. As an IC member, you can expect to:

  • gain skills and experience in the governance and management of an international human rights organisation;
  • gain an understanding of and contribute to the strategic direction and functioning of PBI;
  • work directly with a highly committed group of people dedicated to putting into practice the protection of human rights and promotion of nonviolence.
  •  

5. Languages

All IC meetings and conference calls are conducted in both English and Spanish (when necessary) with interpretation and translations provided.

 

6. Expenses

IC members are all volunteers and receive no remuneration. Communication, travel and other costs incurred while carrying out IC and international committee work will be covered by PBI.

    • Analyse du canevas de dossier de demande de financement à venir : quelles sont les différentes composantes du dossier de demande de financement, comment formuler ces différentes composantes avec les parties prenantes du terrain en particulier la TOC, le cadre logique, la gestion des risques, le budget ; quels points d’attention pour répondre aux critères de recevabilité de la DGD ?
    • Rappel du processus de validation des programmes et rôle des différentes instances de la coopération belge dans ce processus : qui valide quoi et à quel moment ? Quel sont les critères d’analyse utilisés lors de l’analyse des dossiers ? Liens avec les exigences et priorités du Cabinet ?
  • Cadre réglementaire de la DGD :
    • Quel est le cadre réglementaire à prendre en compte dans le cadre de la formulation des programmes ? Où et auprès de quelles instances trouver l’information ?
    • Quel est le cadre réglementaire à maîtriser minima, en termes de suivi et de contrôle des programmes DGD, dans le cadre spécifique de la formulation.

CONTEXTE : Institut HI pour l’Action Humanitaire :

Vecteur de discernement et d’alerte dans les champs éthiques et politiques, l’Institut HI œuvre pour la cohérence entre la philosophie de HI et son mandat opérationnel. L’Institut contribue à la dynamique du sens et nourrit l’adhésion aux valeurs communes. Espace d’ouverture, de débats et d’interactions, il est une passerelle entre praticiens et universitaires et favorise le rayonnement de HI. Lieu d'analyse et de veille sur l'environnement d'action d’HI et sur les conditions d'exercice de l'action de solidarité, l'Institut HI favorise également le partage et la capitalisation d'expériences sur les dilemmes éthiques et les grands moments qui nourrissent l'histoire de l'organisation.

Organe à part entière de la Fédération HI, l’Institut HI est placé sous la responsabilité directe du président du conseil d’administration fédéral et dispose de son propre conseil d’administration, composé de dix membres.

En décembre dernier, un nouveau Directeur de l’Institut a pris ses fonctions. La stratégie, le plan d’action et les méthodes de travail de l’Institut sont en cours de redéfinition.

Relations avec le secteur privé. Evaluation éthique. L’Institut HI est responsable de l’évaluation (screening) des partenariats et financements entreprises et des fondations pour l'ensemble de la Fédération HI. Cette évaluation est réalisée aujourd’hui à partir d’un travail de recherche mené par des consultants externes sur la base de règles et de principes dont la dernière version date de 2016 : 4 critères d’exclusion (la production ou le commerce d’armes, d’alcool ou de tabac, ainsi que l’investissement dans la production de mines antipersonnel et de bombes à sous munitions) et la vérification de 6 indicateurs éthiques (droits de l’Homme et droits fondamentaux au travail ; contribution active à un conflit ; pratiques commerciales prédatrices ou illicites ; production et commercialisation de produits portant atteinte à la santé humaine ; dégradation de l’environnement ayant un impact sur la santé humaine ; engagements pris en matière de responsabilité sociétale et environnementale.)

Au cours du prochain semestre, l’Institut entend mener une analyse et une évaluation du dispositif en place à HI depuis 2007, et tester de nouvelles méthodes d'analyse et d'évaluation et recherche un référent(e) éthique et politiques pour une période de 6 mois pour mener à bien ce projet.

L’Institut HI travaille avec une équipe dédiée – 4 postes à temps plein (Directeur, 3 référents « éthique et politiques », dont un poste vacant). L’équipe travaille en collaboration étroite avec différents services de la Fédération, notamment la Direction Plaidoyer et Représentation Institutionnelle (AIR), la Direction des Opérations, la Direction des Financements et la Direction de la Collecte et de la Communication (DCC), ainsi que les Associations Nationales (AN) : France, Belgique-Luxembourg, Royaume Uni, Allemagne, Suisse et Etats-Unis.

Sur le terrain, l’Institut s’appuie sur un réseau de spécialistes de politiques et de plaidoyer au sein des programmes, avec aujourd’hui trois postes dédiés à ces fonctions (Advocacy and Policy Officers).

OBJECTIFS DU POSTE : Rattaché(e) au Directeur de l’Institut, vos missions sont les suivantes :

  1. Supervision et analyse des évaluations éthiques secteur privé, rédaction des conclusions

Vous préparez, avec l’appui du directeur de l’Institut, et d’experts externes, des propositions de révision (simplification) du dispositif en place à HI relatif au respect de ses lignes éthiques dans ses partenariats avec le secteur privé. Cette révision qui sera mise en œuvre progressivement sur la durée de la mission portera initialement sur le format des analyses mais visera à s’étendre à l’ensemble du dispositif en place à HI, via les éléments suivants :

  • Une analyse des évaluations d’entreprises réalisées par HI, par secteur et type d’entreprises, destinée à renforcer la cohérence des évaluations au sein d’un même secteur ou pour des entreprises comparables.
  • Une analyse des évolutions méthodologiques majeures des dernières années en matière d’analyse dite extra-financière ou ESG (Environnemental, Social et de Gouvernance) des entreprises et leur potentiel d’application par HI, relativement aux lignes éthiques de l’organisation.
