Consultant for Goverance Review - IDMC

Addis Ababa

The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) of the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is the global leader in the provision of data, information and analysis on internal displacement.  IDMC monitors all situations of internal displacement, provides quantitative estimates of the numbers of IDPs worldwide, and develops research and analysis which seeks to better inform policy and operational decisions that affect the lives of internally displaced people NRC and IDMC have decided to engage in a partner-wide consultation to determine the opportunity and feasibility of modifying the current governance structure of IDMC. As IDMC will be celebrating its 20th anniversary next year, the time is ripe to reflect on how it can best fulfill its mandate in the future.

IDMC has evolved and changed a lot over the years. Since the adoption of a new strategy and a complete internal restructuring in 2015, there has been a high demand for IDMC’s analysis and expertise, and increasing willingness from partners to collaborate with and support IDMC.

While IDMC has been part of NRC since its establishment in 1998, and has benefited from this institutional link in many ways, IDMC’s mandate to report on all situations of internal displacement has sometimes been at odds with NRC’s need to maintain operational access and programmes in the field.

For this reason, IDMC and NRC have decided to engage in an internal and external consultation process to review the current governance model and to consider possible new institutional scenarios for the future. This will involve meeting and interviewing a select group of IDMC’s donors, partners and collaborators to gather their thoughts regarding the current set-up, and to develop recommendations for IDMC and NRC moving forward. The process will be designed and implemented by the consultant who will report directly to IDMC’s Director.
