OPPORTUNITY: American Bar Association-United Nations Development Programme International Legal Resource Center

The American Bar Association-United Nations Development Programme International Legal Resource Center (ILRC) has received the following requests: 
  • from UNDP/Iraq for an expert to assess the capacity of the Human Rights Commission (HRC) and their staff to conduct outreach activities with the citizens of Iraq. The UNDP/Iraq program aims to promote human rights and strengthen the prevention and protection human rights mechanisms in Iraq. The program focuses on strengthening human rights and transparency through participatory governance mechanisms. UNDP/Iraq supports the mandate and organizational structure of the (HRC), including the establishment of sub-national commissions, and strengthening the capacity of the Council of Representatives (COR) Human Rights Committee to perform its constitutional function.
  • from UNDP/Sierra Leone for an expert with experience in constitutional making processes.  The expert will work alongside UNDP and the UN Department of Political Affairs (DPA).  A number of meetings and interviews will be conducted to assess the general environment in Sierra Leone on constitutional review. The assessment will determine whether the UN will support minor amendments to certain Articles in the constitution through the parliament or grand constitution reform which leads to referenda. The main output of the mission will be the development of a roadmap. UNDP will benefit from the analysis and the roadmap to formulate a program that covers constitutional review process, political dialogue, and conflict prevention.
