Global Partners Governance Project Manager, Beirut, Lebanon 

Job Description 


The Role 

Global Partners Governance (GPG) works with parliaments, governments and political parties around the world to promote representative politics and effective governance. With over a decade’s experience in more than 30 countries, GPG has developed a distinctively political approach to managing change and strengthening political institutions. In the effort to create more resilient, responsive and effective political institutions, we start with individuals, not institutional architecture. Lasting change, we believe, ultimately depends on understanding people and politics more than structure and process. For more on our work, see our website at
