CONSULTANCY: POLICY ANALYSIS FOR IIED EUROPE JUNE 2021 Consultancy: Policy Analysis for IIED Europe Consultancy and project details Reports to Interim Director, IIED Europe; IIED Senior Fellow based in the Strategy and Learning Group (SLG) Purpose of role The purpose of this role is to scope the range of EU / European policy tracks IIED could cover. [...] The deliverables will be to carry out research, consultation and analysis to help IIED decide what policy contexts and processes IIED Europe should prioritise and provide a detailed analysis of our options; key alliances we should prioritise linked to these options; and recommendations on where we should focus our work in future. [...] We are confronting a COVID-related global recession; reductions in levels of ODA and changes to the purposes for which aid is used; Britain’s exit from the EU; and at global level, uncertainty over the future status of multilateral institutions and processes. [...] The consultant will be contracted by IIED Europe and will help to establish the profile and research agenda for the new organisation, working closely with IIED staff based in the UK. [...] Given the growing divergence of interest between the UK and the EU, IIED will need to have eyes on both the European and British policy horizons.
