HR in TN III / National Consultant on Media and Communication
Vacancy Number: Pr21/02215
Ms. Liliana Samburschii.email@example.com
The human rights context in the Transnistrian region is illustrated by the amplitude and interplay of multiple forms of inequalities vulnerable groups, such as inter alia persons with disabilities, Roma, people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS, children in contact with the law, vulnerable women, prisoners and people who use drugs, are encountering. The ability of vulnerable groups from the region to effectively exercise their rights is impaired by the human rights knowledge, capacity and authority gaps they face. The embryonic civil society environment with weak capacities to influence the policy-making and to reach out to the most vulnerable ones and low human rights awareness of the CSOs, professionals and the population at large are hindering the realization of human rights in the region. Undeveloped and gender-blind specialized service provision, deriving from human and economic resources capacity gaps and the absence of a comprehensive human rights framework are representing additional major contributing factors to this debilitating juncture.
The Programme will work on reducing inequalities for women, men and children in the Transnistrian region, by ensuring that vulnerable human rights holders are empowered to exercise their rights and duty bearers respect, protect and fulfil human rights to a larger extent. It also aims to contribute to the implementation of the National Human Rights Action Plan 2018-2022.
Scope of work

The selected Consultant will elaborate and implement One UN Joint Action "Cross-river support to Human Rights" Communication Strategy at the national and regional levels, including support and organization of media coverage of Programme’s activities and events.
