Hivos seeks qualified candidates for the position of Consultant for Scoping Study Publication and Dissemination.



Hivos with the support of Robert Bosch Stiftung will develop a Scoping Study to improve understanding of the nature of citizen participation in public service delivery in Southeast Asia. Through this study, we hope to find solution in increasing the public’s access to responsive and accountable public service delivery by closing feedback loops that influence the government’s decision making processes.

The study will:

  1. Identify and map institutions and individuals working to promote citizen engagement, government response, research and technology in the country.
