Research consultant sought for research project on LGBTI political participation in Albania

Gay & Lesbian Victory Institute and Open Mind Spectrum Albania (OMSA) are looking for a consultant or team of consultants for a 6-month contract to produce a research publication on political participation of LGBTI people in Albania.
OMSA and Victory Institute are commissioning this report as part of their work to learn how to increase political participation of LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and intersex) people in Albania.
The overall purpose of the research paper is to have an overview of the current situation of the political participation of LGBTI people in Albania and identify entry points for this work with political parties and State institutions, to help inform our work.
The majority of the research will rely on qualitative research methods, including semi-structured interviews. The consultant will also implement a media analysis of instances when political participation of LGBTI citizens is mentioned in the media in Albania. The gathered information will help the consultant, as well, to draw some quantitative conclusions and trends.
The consultant will also be reviewing existing reports and literature. The research product will be a report about political participation of LGBTI people in Albania, no less than 12,000 words.
