Denmark: Consultancy: Mapping and study of the Syrian diaspora in selected European countries
Closing date: 2017-03-01Application : Apply for the job
Organization: Danish Refugee Council
Closing date: 01 Mar 2017
Danish Refugee Council s Diaspora Programme (DP) has, since 2012, been working with diasporas in Denmark to promote humanitarian assistance and development in their country of origin. DRC s DP seeks to extend its work to the Syrian diaspora in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, France and the UK both through its own programming (DRC DP) and in collaboration with an inter-agency Durable Solutions Platform (DSP) that is hosted by Danish Refugee Council in the Middle East. To do this it requires qualitative and quantitative analysis of Syrian diasporas including the range of actors and associations that make up the Syrian diaspora in selected European countries.
This analysis should refer to and collate data and recommendations from existing mappings and studies; it has two components:
- A comprehensive mapping of Syrian diasporas and diaspora-like entities (networks, associations etc.) in selected countries (Denmark, Sweden, Germany, France and the UK). It should also make reference to profiles of Syrian refugees who have arrived in recent years.
- A study that provides a capacity assessment of, amongst other attributes, the strength, purpose and aims/objectives of Syrian diasporas in order to identify areas of potential collaboration. The study should also present specific recommendations for action regarding context-appropriate and conflict-sensitive ways of involving members of the diaspora.
Specifically the mapping and study will be used by the DSP to engage with the most relevant group of Syrians (associations and individual) across Europe for consultations on future solutions scenarios for Syrian refugees, as well as to enable DRC s DP to develop activities specifically targeting the Syrian diaspora in Denmark looking towards the reconstruction and development of Syria.
Services to be provided
The consultant shall undertake the following:
- Map the Syrian diaspora in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, France and the UK (in the form of a contact list comprising qualitative information presented as a table) with:
a. An overview or map of networks, associations, umbrella organisations, employers federations, etc. of the Syrian diaspora which are interested in engaging in Syria (with contact details).
b. Elaborate the degree and form of each diaspora organisation/entity along with aspects such as focus, mandate, areas of operation etc. (to be developed in consultation with DRC DP) in order to assess prospects to foster recovery/ development processes in Syria and in their region of origin.
c. In addition to networks and association, key individuals (community leaders, highly educated individuals engaged in Syria, etc.) should be identified in order for DRC to identify relevant resource persons for information sharing, consultations etc.
Focus should be on identifying and analysing characteristics of the diaspora that are relevant to the solutions agenda and to the recovery/development of Syria, and that will help DRC identify and design relevant programmes to facilitate constructive diaspora engagement. This could be the existence of relevant technical skills, but also the loss of relevant skills during displacement. skills and resources that would be of relevance to the solutions agenda and to the recovery/development of Syria (e.g. technical skills), Housing, Land and Property related issues, etc.
- A study (based on quantitative and qualitative data) of the Syrian diaspora in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, France and the UK including:
a. Structures(diaspora context for each country with type of migration, residence status, demographic and socioeconomic data, level of education, qualifications (by sector), level of employment, geographic distribution etc.)
b. Degree and forms of organisation(associations, umbrella networks etc.)

g. Information on intentions(e.g. prospects/motivation to integrate and possible readiness to return to Syria)
h. Interest and willingnessto be part of both DRC DP and DSP activities on humanitarian and development projects in Syria and solutions for Syrians refugees respectively.
The mapping and study must offer recommendations on context-appropriate and conflict-sensitive methods to engage the diaspora, opportunities and risk mitigation (with an additional operational risk assessment in relation to the inclusion of Syrian diaspora into the DP).

- Study max. 30 pages; in English with annex containing additional information, tables, etc.
- Presentation of the study in form of a Power Point presentation to be used by DP/DSP for external purposes.
Assignment dates: 5 March to 5 May 2017
- Collected contact data is to be provided on a rolling basis by the consultant to DRC DP/DSP
- First draft of Map/Study to be submitted no later than 14 April 2017
- Final version of Mapping, Study + PPT presentation to be submitted by 1 May 2017
No. of working days: 10 days (mapping) + 15 days (study/recommendations/presentation)
