The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) seeks a Senior Project Officer (SPO) to be based in Kabul to help with the implementation of a two-year project titled “Men, Peace and Security”. Through this project, USIP will work with young Afghan men in four provinces (Kabul, Herat, Balkh and Nangarhar) focusing on a peaceful and positive narrative of masculinity.  The Men, Peace and Security project will use lessons learned from other violent conflict-affected countries to help Afghan men re-learn a non-violent sense of masculinity. Through dialogue and training about their roles, identities and experiences as men during Afghanistan’s violent conflict.
USIP’s mission in Afghanistan is to support programs that promote more legitimate, inclusive, effective and accountable state institutions and processes, and that strengthen the capacity of civil society organizations in Afghanistan to advocate for good governance and the peaceful resolution of conflict
