About IDLO

The International Development Law Organization (IDLO) is an inter-governmental organization devoted to promoting the rule of law.  IDLO works to enable governments and empower people to reform laws and strengthen institutions to promote peace, justice, sustainable development and economic opportunity. We contribute to creating stable and inclusive societies where every person can live free from fear and want, in dignity and under the rule of law.

Gender equality is among IDLO’s core values and guiding principles. IDLO’s Strategic Plan specifically states that IDLO is “committed to promoting gender equality through non-discriminatory gender responsive laws, and institutions, enhancing women’s access to justice and increasing their legal empowerment to achieve sustainable development”. In this framework, IDLO is implementing a Project which supports the elimination of discriminatory laws in the Philippines, aligning to the “Equality in Law for Women and Girls by 2030: A multi-stakeholder Strategy for Accelerated Action” (EDL) led by UNWOMEN. The overall goal of the Project is to facilitate elimination or reform of laws that discriminate against women and girls.

Part of this program is to build legal and technical capacity on legal drafting and/or specific thematic areas to support legal reform work, specifically for the House of Representatives and the Senate of the Philippines. The capacity building will be developed and delivered in coordination with IDLO’s institutional partner, the Philippine Commission on Women. To support the capacity building of the House of Representatives and Senate of the Philippines, IDLO will retain an Instructional Designer/E-Learning Developer Consultant to design the asynchronous components of a Blended Learning course.
