Mission and objectives

On 3 May 2022, to support the process of Strategic Foresight, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine established an Inter-factional Union (IFU) “Strategic Foresight of Ukraine” comprising 25 MPs. The main goal of this Union is to “unite and coordinate the efforts of Ukrainian MPs on development of scenarios for Ukraine’s postwar future, identifying key trends, risks, and security factors”.
The Strategic Foresight will serve as an input to the strategic review of policies; it will help uncover opportunities and threats that traditional processes might miss. Members of the IFU will work to ensure that the results streamlined into the deliberations by key governmental stakeholders.

Task description

We are looking for up to two (2) experienced Online Volunteers who, under the supervision of the experts from the Inter-factional Union of MPs “Strategic Foresight of Ukraine”, will support data gathering and analysis within the framework of Strategic Foresight “Futures of Russia: Impact on the Futures of Ukraine and Europe”.
The initiative envisages research, analysis and reporting tasks within the Horizon Scanning stage of the Strategic Foresight Project, which will be required during May – June 2024. This will be a combination of email exchange and Zoom calls for work coordination with experts, and individual work on data gathering.
More specifically, the Online Volunteers will be responsible for:
– Identifying reliable data sources in German for horizon scanning, following specific guidelines provided by the team. These guidelines will help pinpoint good sources for detecting weak signals and emerging trends relevant to our strategic objectives.
– Conducting comprehensive research to identify signs of change across all areas covered by the STEEPED categorization (Social, Technological, Economic, Environmental, Political, Ethical, and Demographic). Analyze the gathered data and document the insights according to pre-defined format.
– Aggregate the researched data and produce knowledge products in English, if needed.
