background

IDLO has been working in Myanmar since 2013, to support the country’s government justice institutions, lawyers, civil society representatives and communities to strengthen rule of law and access to justice, enhance gender equality and promote peace and development in line with Sustainable Development Goal 16, as part of the ongoing democratic transition in the country.

Taking steps to address the culture of impunity and to hold perpetrators of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) to account, especially in conflict-affect areas, IDLO in 2018 launched a pilot program in Kachin and Shan States, Strengthening Prevention of and Accountability for Sexual and Gender-Based Violence. The program seeks to build trust between by various SGBV responders by supporting community-level and multi-stakeholder dialogues on SGBV and strengthen understanding among individual justice sector responders on the legal framework and Myanmar human rights obligations related to SGBV through specialized training. More recently, IDLO has been supporting the development of standard operating procedures (SOP) on the investigation of cases of SGBV for the Myanmar Police Force (MPF) and on the prosecution of cases of SGBV for the Union Attorney General’s Office (UAGO).

the assignment

Under the supervision of the Capacity Development Specialist and overall guidance of the Project Coordinator, the Consultant will draft three sets of curricula, detailed below. Each of the curriculum must be grounded in survivor-centred approaches to responding to SGBV.

Training materials will include session plans and handouts and must employ a variety of interactive training methodologies designed for adult learners.
