The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is Looking for a Research Analyst, Africa Program

Carnegie Africa Program

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a renowned international affairs institution, seeks a Research Analyst to work with scholars on the evolving digital technology landscape in Africa in its Washington DC-based Africa Program.

The Carnegie Africa Program does high-quality and policy-relevant analysis on the economic, political, and transnational issues shaping Africa’s future. The Carnegie Africa Program’s technology work stream seeks to provide policy makers and other stakeholders with practical policy insights to help maximize the opportunities of digital technologies in African countries.

The Research Analyst will work closely with the Africa Program’s Technology fellow to conduct research on related digital technology-related areas, support with convening in-person workshops and meetings, support the crafting of proposals and project budgets, and provide overall project management support.

The Research Analyst will provide research and project management support for the AfTech build-out by expanding the database from its current pilot stage into a comprehensive repository of the continent’s tech regulation laws. For the tracker, duties will include data sourcing, validation, and compiling onto the tracker’s foundation.
