Calls for experts to research and write reports on human rights-related issues in Iran and Iraq
The Ceasefire Centre for Civilian Rights and Minority Rights Group International are seeking two experts to research and write separate reports on human rights in Iran and Iraq.
The Iraq expert will research and write a report on reparations and the future of Mosul, considering the legacy of violations committed in recent years and the implementation of reparations, focusing on the consequences for human rights in Iraq.
The Iran expert will research and write a report on human rights violations in Iran related to measures taken for the purpose of national security and/or the prevention of terrorism, including the impact of these violations on Iran’s ethnic and religious minorities.
Both reports will be approximately 12,000 words long, written in English and are to be completed by no later than 19 August 2019. Remuneration for each report will be US $4000.
Applicants should submit a CV, a brief cover letter and a suggested chapter outline to firstname.lastname@example.org
