Duration: 14 working days

Background

Despite the existence of constitutional provisions and commitments to regional and international human right treaties and conventions, the right of women and girls are grossly violated and devalued in Nigeria and many African countries. Nigeria is still grappling with gender equality, working on building a just society devoid of discrimination, equal opportunities regardless of sex, that can give both men and women equal voices in decision making and policy implementation.

In 2004, Nigeria ratified the Protocol to the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa (African Women’s Protocol), thereby taking the first step towards expanding the scope of protection for women’s human rights in Nigeria, and in particular violence against women. The African Women’s Protocol is one of the several international instruments Nigeria ratified, which provides measures to be taken to improve the promotion and protection of women’s rights. Earlier international statutes include the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, International Convention on Civil and Political Rights, Convention on Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women, Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and the United Nations Declaration on Violence Against Women.

Women’s Rights Advancement and Protection Alternative (WRAPA) is a leading voice in the advocacy and campaign against Violence Against Women (VAW) in all its ramifications. It served as the foundation Secretariat for a 65 member Coalition; Legislative Advocacy Coalition on Violence Against Women (LACVAW) for over ten years and remains a member of its Board.  WRAPA engages in legislative advocacy for legal reforms and public education on international law with its campaign and advocacy seeing to Nigeria’s ratification in 2004 of the Protocol to the African Charter on the Rights of Women in Africa.

WRAPA implemented the HakiMkononi project, which increased and amplified the demand for the domestication of the Women’s Protocol using the instruments of the GEO Bill and the VAPP Act in Plateau and Kaduna States.

Job Position: Individual Contract

Duration: 14 working days
Application deadline: 17th July, 2020
Supervisor: Senior Program Coordinator

Background

Gaps in legal and social frame works compounded by weak enforcement are the key drivers in the growing impunity for VAWG and Sexual Gender Based Violence (SGBV) in Nigeria. Redress for survivors and accountability by perpetrators are in abysmal figures for violations in private and public spaces. Efforts by organizations, working on Violence against Women and enactment of legislations at federal and state levels especially the Violence against Persons Prohibition (VAPP) Act 2015, the adoption of National Action Plan on UNSCR 1325 are yet to show significant changes. However, the establishment of Sexual Assault Referral Centers (SARC), and Sexual Domestic Violence Response Teams, across the country is gradually availing VAWG survivor’s defined, specialized and formal support. Despite all these efforts the legal provisions, socio-cultural practices and hurdles in the administration of justice provide women with little protection against violence.
The institutions of faith and culture are grounded in theological legitimacy. This qualifies them to frame discourse on issues aimed at extracting commitments for peace, justice and social equity. In addition, these institutions are considered an embodiment of moral values, which confers on them some influence in personal and family spheres, as well as social attitudes and behavior. Religious and Traditional Leaders, institutions and organizations are important influencers in Nigeria. These organizations are considered to have more legitimacy, respect and influence than secular NGOs. They are more established and have closer links with communities. They are held in reverence with less suspicion and even exercise limited enforcement capacity. These organizations also serve as arbitration platforms in dispute resolution relating to family life. Limitations however abound in legal frameworks, offering little or no respite to VAWG survivors thereby limiting women’s capacity to seek justice for abuses especially for violations within family settings.
Against this background, WRAPA is look to employ the services of a consultant responsible for the production of a baseline report that gives a detailed mapping as well as provide information that will guide the successful implementation of the project as well as produce action plans in line with the results framework as stated in line with the work plan.

1. Develop a comprehensive baseline report that provides information on key drivers and determinants of contextual social norms, behaviors and practices in FCT, Katsina, Jigawa and Plateau.

3. Issue base and implementation partnerships as well as sustainability strategies.
