Now you cannot understand anything about fascist doctrine if you do not understand that their central claim was that liberalism is antidemocratic; in other words, the fascists claimed that liberal institutions cannot represent the will of the people. They further claimed that their typical institutions, particularly the party, were more effective means to represent the will of the people. So fascists were “authoritarian democrats.”
Job opportunity: Research, Advocacy and Policy Manager
Triangle Project is a registered not-for-profit organisation based in Cape Town that focuses on the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people. The organisation achieves its objectives through a number of core programmes, including the Research, Advocacy & Policy (RAP) Programme. The RAP Programme aims to generate an accessible body of knowledge on LGBTI issues through community-based research that informs activism and advocacy. The Programme also promotes the rights of LGBTI people by engaging in advocacy at local and national level aimed at transforming legislation, policies and practices of various state institutions and civil society organisations.
Our approach in the RAP Programme is informed by principles of participatory research with a focus on skills- and capacity-building of LGBTI community activists and organisations. Working within such a framework facilitates the creation of knowledge that is owned and controlled by LGBTI persons and ultimately increases the depth and reach of community-led advocacy based on the research findings.
We are seeking to appoint a Research, Advocacy and Policy Manager for the Programme, to take forward an urgent existing portfolio of work.
Interested candidates are invited to submit (1) a motivation letter; (2) detailed CV; (3) writing sample; and (4) details of three contactable work-related references to email@example.com by Monday 24 November 2014. Submission prior to this date is encouraged.
Triangle Project practices affirmative action for LGBTI people. Please note that only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
