National Individual Consultant
 
Review and Documentation of the Consequences of the 2007 Post General Election Violence
 
Background
 
Kenya held the fourth multiparty General Election on 27th December, 2007. The dispute that followed the announcement of the result of that election by the Election Commission of Kenya (ECK) on 30th December, 2007 quickly degenerated into an unprecedented sevenweek long spate of violence in the Coast, Nairobi, Nyanza, Rift Valley and Western Provinces. 

The conflict led to an estimated loss of 1,200 lives, dislocation of about 301,000 people, destruction of property, heightened ethnic hatred and general destruction of social and economic life. UNDP as a long term development partner played a crucial role in facilitating and ensuring peace negotiations, mobilizing Development Partners and recovery efforts. 

As Kenya prepares for the forth coming election in March 4, 2013, it is very important as part of peace advocacy and civic education that the effects of the 2007 general elections are documented as a cautionary measure against repetition.
 
Objective
 
Assessment of the impact of the post-election on the lives of the affected population.
 
Application Procedure
 
Interested and qualified candidates should submit their application which should include the following:
 
1. Detailed Curriculum Vitae
 
2. UNDP Personal History Form (P11) ( template provided)
 
3. Proposal for implementing the assignment (template provided)
 
Please quote “Review and Documentation – 2007 Post General Election Violence” on the subject line.
