The Fellow's main responsibilities include writing grant proposals, blog posts and articles in order to source funding and enhance community dialogue around issues of security reform. Background in post-conflict resolution or security studies is helpful. Tetun is the official language in the office, so it is essential for the Fellow to learn Tetun upon arrival.
