Protection Team Leader (Monitoring and Outreach)

Tripoli (Libya)

 Duty Station [Tripoli]   
    
    
The Danish Refugee Council assists refugees and internally displaced persons across the globe: we provide emergency aid, fight for their rights, and strengthen their opportunity for a brighter future. We work in conflict-affected areas, along the displacement routes, and in the countries where refugees settle. In cooperation with local communities, we strive for responsible and sustainable solutions. We work toward successful integration and – whenever possible – for the fulfilment of the wish to return home.      
The Danish Refugee Council was founded in Denmark in 1956, and has since grown to become an international humanitarian organization with more than 7,000 staff and 8,000 volunteers. Our vision is a dignified life for all displaced.      
All of our efforts are based on our value compass: humanity, respect, independence and neutrality, participation, and honesty and transparency.   
    
    
    
Who are we?
