The Public Participation Section (PPS) of Democratization Department of the OSCE Mission in Kosovo is implementing an extra-budgetary project “Roll-out of ‘Leaders against Intolerance and Violent Extremism’ (LIVE) Training Course for Youth” #2101017. LIVE is a new flagship capacity-building initiative for civil society announced by the OSCE Secretary General in 2015 in line with Ministerial Council Declaration No. 4/15 in Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism and Radicalization that Lead to Terrorism.
LIVE aims to raise awareness, encourage, and train leaders of civil society so that they can, on a voluntary basis, effectively undertake and advocate efforts for countering/preventing violent extremism and radicalism that lead to terrorism (C/PVERLT), especially at the local level. Using a multi-dimensional and cross-sectoral approach, the LIVE initiative seeks to promote context-specific efforts against VERLT developed and led by civil society across the OSCE area for grassroots awareness-raising to build resilience; counter-messaging to condemn and delegitimize terrorism; and promote alternative narratives and opportunities for positive change. The LIVE aims to generate and promote efforts that are organic to civil society, and to ensure a level of quality in their planning.
Since countering VERLT requires a multi-dimensional approach and multi-stakeholder collaboration, this LIVE training program will also involve representatives of key ministries responsible for dealing with VERLT in Kosovo.
The Monitoring Evaluation and Learning (MEL) Expert will be tasked to evaluate MEL forms completed by course organizer (MEL Tools 1-5), train facilitators (MEL Tool 6), and training of participants (MEL Tools 7-10), and to fill in Tools for external evaluators (MEL tool 11-12) as part of final evaluation of the LIVE training.
To achieve the described goals OSCE requires the services of one experienced consultant/expert, familiar with the topic, for a period of 12 days.
