War on Want works to challenge the root causes of poverty, inequality, and injustice through partnership with social movements in the South and by running hard-hitting campaigns in the UK in support of radical change.
We are currently looking for a highly motivated Senior Campaigner to lead on delivering our campaigning work on Militarism and Security issues, including our campaigns on Justice for Palestine and Western Sahara.
War on Want’s campaigning programme on Militarism and Security exposes the links between the perpetuation of war, conflict, and instability around the world, and the industries and political interests that profit and benefit from it. The programme seeks to de-naturalise the logic of war; to oppose the militarisation and securitisation of foreign policy, as well as domestic policy; to formulate and promote concrete recommendations for policy-makers to curb the power of military industries and to facilitate accountability; and to seed and participate in broader conversations about alternatives to militarism and securitisation.
The Justice for Palestine campaign which looks at corporate and UK government complicity in Israel’s occupation and apartheid regime is a backbone of the programme area, as is War on Want’s significant contributions historically to the solidarity movement with the Saharawi people.
This is an exciting post that has led some of War on Want’s most innovative and successful campaigns; it is also a key area of engagement for War on Want members and supporters.
You will be joining War on Want at a time when we are looking to evolve our Militarism and Security work in order to refresh our strategy and plan for the coming years. We have recently engaged in a project to provide external scoping for the potential future direction of this work; the recommendations from this project will help to frame the next steps for our Militarism and Security campaigning programme.
