Deadline: 6 April 2022
Open to: international applicants
Benefits: remuneration – EUR 4 623 NET per month + benefits


Responding to increasing challenges to democracy and a shrinking democratic space around the world, including in more established democracies, International IDEA’s Democracy Assessment team, through its Global State of Democracy (GSoD) Programme (established in 2016 as part of International IDEA’s Global Programmes), seeks to contribute to the global debate on democracy and inform the development and implementation of strategies and policies that build, advance and safeguard democracy worldwide.

Since its launch, the GSoD programme has completed 3 two-year programme cycles, which have been organized around a variety of different knowledge products, including International IDEA’s flagship Global State of Democracy Report, an annually updated statistical dataset on democratic quality, now covering 165 countries in the world (GSoD Indices) and shorter thematic policy briefs on current issues in the democracy debate (GSoD In Focus).

The GSoD programme also oversaw the Global Monitor of Covid-19’s Impact on Democracy and Human Rights, which was a qualitative monitor and a “one-stop-shop” online global monitoring tool/of the democracy and human rights implications of measures adopted by governments around the world in the context of the COVID-19 crisis, specifically in the 165 countries included in International IDEA’s Global State of Democracy (GSoD) Indices. This tool covered the time period beginning in June 2020 and ending in December 2021. This Monitor is now being redesigned and reformulated to cover democracy and human rights developments outside the context of the pandemic.

The Democracy Assessment team at International IDEA is now recruiting a Programme Officer with strong research, analysis and writing skills to lead the further development of the Monitor.
