Responsabilités

The Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and Africa Sports Unified (ASU) launched in April 2021 the Programme of Work on Sport and Trade to leverage the ability for sport to support the inclusive implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) by targeting youth, women and girls and persons with disabilities.

The programme aims to explore and leverage the linkage between the AfCFTA and sport through knowledge generation and stakeholder engagement. The programme will understand how building and growing an inclusive and sustainable sports ecosystem can promote regional cooperation, entrepreneurship, employability, innovation, manufacturing and ultimately inclusive intra-African trade.

It also explores opportunities the AfCFTA brings to address the multidimensional challenges young people and women face in Africa to obtain quality jobs and decent wages by creating new opportunities for intra-African trade across manufacturing and services sectors in the African sports industry. It will address the limited access youth and women have to professional associations and to the resources that can support their participation in trade. At the same time, it will focus on the transfer of knowledge from leading research on entrepreneurship and innovation, including training and skills development.

The AfCFTA holds a promise to accelerate inclusive and sustainable development in Africa through the creation of a single and liberalized market for goods and services which will increase intra-African trade and boost revenues and livelihoods.

With trading having commenced on 1 January this year, the AfCFTA presents an opportunity to address the challenges young people face in Africa in obtaining employment and decent wages by creating new opportunities for trading and entrepreneurial activities across various manufacturing and services sectors.

One research component of the work stream focus on learning lessons from sports to support regional cooperation, boost intra-African trade, and improve peace and security on the continent. The second research component will address questions of the role of sports in the implementation of the AfCFTA, including sports as trade in services, intellectual property, investment, competition, and opportunities for manufacturing and job creation, such as in Botswana and Mauritius. Research components address inclusive implementation by looking at the potential of sports to support youth and women in terms of entrepreneurship, employment, and innovation. This knowledge generation will include case studies and lessons learned from the continent and outside, such as the Qatar experience in sports diplomacy, in order to provide evidence to inform the subsequent aspects of this project.

Objective of the Assignment:
1. Reviewing the two research components and assess their quality and relevance based on the TORs of the research components
2. Create 2 policy briefs and recommendations based on the two research components on how governments best can leverage sports development and sports trade to promote the inclusive implementation of the AfCFTA as well as how intra-African sports trade can be boosted with the implementation of the AfCFTA.
3. Engage with ECA staff to further decide on assignments that would be relevant and for the intern to conduct over the period of the internship

Working under overall guidance from ATPC staff and the direct supervision of the project manager, the intern is expected to perform the following specific tasks:
- Conduct a review of the research components
- Create 2 policy briefs to ECA’s Member States based on the recommendations that can be extracted from the two research components

Charte des Nations Unies

Aux termes du paragraphe 3 de l’Article 101 de la Charte des Nations Unies, la considération dominante dans le recrutement du personnel doit être la nécessité d’assurer à l’Organisation les services de personnes possédant les plus hautes qualités de travail, de compétence et d’intégrité. Ne seront pas retenues les candidatures des personnes qui ont commis des violations du droit international des droits de l’homme, des violations du droit international humanitaire, des actes d’exploitation, d’atteintes ou de harcèlement sexuels, ou au sujet desquelles il existe des raisons plausibles de croire qu’elles ont été impliquées dans la commission de tels actes. L’expression « exploitation sexuelle » désigne le fait d’abuser ou de tenter d’abuser d’un état de vulnérabilité, d’un rapport de force inégal ou de rapports de confiance à des fins sexuelles, y compris mais non exclusivement en vue d’en tirer un avantage pécuniaire, social ou politique. On entend par « atteinte sexuelle » toute atteinte physique de nature sexuelle commise par la force, sous la contrainte ou à la faveur d’un rapport inégal, ou la menace d’une telle atteinte. Le harcèlement sexuel s'entend de tout comportement déplacé à connotation sexuelle raisonnablement propre ou de nature à choquer ou humilier, lorsqu'il entrave la bonne marche du service, est présenté comme une condition d'emploi ou crée au lieu de travail un climat d'intimidation, d'hostilité ou de vexation, et lorsque ce comportement est assez grave pour justifier le licenciement de son auteur. La candidature de personnes qui ont commis des infractions autres que des infractions mineures au code de la route ne sera pas retenue.

Sera dûment prise en considération l'importance d'un recrutement effectué sur une base géographique aussi large que possible. Aucune restriction ne sera imposée par l'Organisation à l'accès des hommes et des femmes, dans des conditions égales, à toutes les fonctions, dans ses organes principaux et subsidiaires. Le Secrétariat de l'Organisation des Nations Unies est un espace non-fumeurs.

La considération dominante dans l’engagement, la mutation ou la promotion du personnel est la nécessité de s’assurer les services de personnes possédant les plus hautes qualités de travail, de compétence et d’intégrité. En acceptant une offre d’engagement, les membres du personnel sont soumis(es) à l’autorité du Secrétaire général, qui peut leur assigner l’une quelconque des tâches ou l’un quelconque des postes de l’Organisation des Nations Unies, conformément à l’alinéa c) de l’article 1.2 du Statut du personnel. Dans ce contexte, tous les membres du personnel recrutés sur le plan international sont tenus de changer de fonctions périodiquement à l’intérieur d’un même lieu d’affectation ou dans un autre lieu d’affectation, dans les conditions fixées par le Secrétaire général.
