Federal Republic of Somalia
Ministry of Constitutional Affairs
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: YOUNG GRADUATE
The Federal Ministry of Constitutional Affairs (MoCA) mandate is to facilitate the creation of enabling conditions that would ensure effective implementation of the constitutional review process. Its role therefore includes: promoting and facilitating political and public consultations on the review process with the Joint Parliamentary Oversight Committee of the Somali Federal Parliament, the Independent Constitutional Review and Implementation Commission, Federal Member States, political, social and cultural groups and the Somali people in general in order to create an open, transparent and inclusive constitutional review process.
The Constitutional Review and Implementation Support Project Initiation Plan (PIP), endorsed in May 2017, supported the Ministry of Constitutional Affairs to formulate and develop a Master-plan upon which the constitution review process will start. The PIP supported the initial activities required to take place to ensure an inclusive consultative process is in place to endorse and adopt joint roadmap for finalization of the constitution review process. During the PIP period, the Ministry of the Constitutional Affairs held extensive consultations with key role players and stakeholders that provided the current phase of constitutional review with the required legitimacy.
The Project is designed to provide responsive support to the constitution-making bodies, particularly to the activities of MoCA; and support for public civic education and consultation, particularly envisaging the inclusion of women, youth, minorities, and other marginalized people. The projects envisaged in the strategic plan of the ministry, especially with regards to consultative processes and civic education, are considered important entry points for respective project activities.
The objective of the program is to provide quality work experience to the newly Somali university graduates in the areas of Administration, Finance, law, public administration, management and among others. This will contribute to creation of skilled work force impeded in the ministry, thus help ministry to deliver its mandate.
