PROGRAM OFFICER - SEARCH FOR COMMON GROUND INDONESIA

Reducing Recruitment and Recidivism of Violent Extremists in Indonesia Program 

Search for Common Ground Indonesia, a non-profit, independent, secular, non-government organization dedicated to conflict transformation, is seeking a conflict resolution and community development professional to work as a Program Officer on one of our education and religious tolerance programs.

Search for Common Ground Indonesia is a representative office of Search for Common Ground (SFCG), whose mission is to transform how individuals, organisations and governments deal with conflict - away from adversarial approaches and toward cooperative solutions. SFCG’s headquarters are in Washington, DC USA and Brussels, Belgium.

Background of the project
Search for Common Ground (SFCG) Indonesia is implementing a two-year project entitled ‘Reducing the Recruitment and Recidivism of Violent Extremists in Indonesia’.

Indonesia faces an ongoing challenge to both prevent the recruitment of at-risk youth into networks of violent extremists and to reduce the risk of recidivism amongst convicted extremists. Building on its extensive experience working with at-risk Indonesian youth and the Indonesian corrections system, SFCG will address these challenges by facilitating student initiatives to prevent recruitment of at-risk youth using creative media and by empowering Indonesian government services in supporting successful reintegration. The project will also coach parole officers to engage communities in the reintegration of violent extremists post-release.
