Job Expired

Job Overview


Production of an Event Video for GACWAG Closing Ceremony

(For individual consultants or consulting teams or firms)


  1. Background

The intervention (hereafter “project”) entitled Women and Girls Rebuilding Iraq implemented by OXFAM in Iraq contributes to shaping policy, decision-making mechanisms, and peace-building processes at multiple levels with the specific objective to ensure women and girls play a significant role in the new rehabilitation and development agenda. The initiative is working with women and girls in the Kirkuk and Diyala governorates, both of which have endured a protracted conflict. Part of the project also takes place at the national level involving public policy engagement and advocacy on women’s and girls’ rights.

Displaced women continue to suffer sexual and gender-based violence in both in-camp and out-of-camp settings even while the military offensive by ISIL is over. Despite some progress in the legislative protection of women’s equal rights, most of the women in Iraq are affected by long-term social, economic, and political exclusion exacerbated by deeply entrenched patriarchal values held by a large proportion of the population.

Two intermediate outcomes have been envisioned for the project:

  • Increased active participation of women and girls in public decision-making processes as transformative leaders.
  • The improved social and political environment for the effective participation of women and girls in government structures.


The project works at 3 levels:

  • Micro: individual capacity building and community engagement (involving both women and men);
  • Meso: working with interlocutors, WROs and women’s rights defenders to improve the well-being of women and girls.
  • Macro: work with opinion formers and policymakers for increased active participation of women and girls in governance structures.
