Call for Applications: junior moderators for Debating Security Plus

Friends of Europe is looking for motivated junior researchers or M.A./PhD students to facilitate discussions during its 2017 flagship online brainstorm, Debating Security Plus, which takes place from 26 to 28 September 2017. TEPSA has joined the event as a Coalition Partner.

Junior moderators interact directly with VIPs from around the world and with thousands of experts from the security, human rights and development community. Junior moderators will be mentioned by name in the Debating Security Plus report, to be presented at high-level events in Brussels and around the world and distributed in electronic and print copies to tens of thousands of security stakeholders and decision-makers globally. Friends of Europe brainstorms have impact: recommendations from previous events fed into the policy thinking that shaped NATO’s Strategic Concept in 2010 and the EU’s Global Strategy in 2016.

As a junior moderator, you will:

  • Receive a 90-minute online training by Friends of Europe;
  • Facilitate daily 3-hour shifts from 26-28 September, in pre-determined time slots;
  • Write a short, bullet-point summary at the end of every shift to be shared with senior moderators.

Deadline for applications: 14 July 2017 @ 12:00 pm CEST

To apply, please send your CV and a statement addressing which two topics you’d like to help moderate, highlighting 5-10 questions that you think must urgently be answered for each topic (in bullet-point form) to Amanda Rohde (
