UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
Violence against women and girls (‘VAWG’) is one of the most serious and universal human rights violations. Only a minority of VAWG cases are ever reported to the police by survivors. Of these cases, a smaller percentage result in charges brought against perpetrators, and even fewer convictions. A positive initial contact experience with police is therefore crucial for survivors of violence. A high-quality police and justice response must be available and accessible to all women and girls who are navigating an often-complex justice system, especially those who are most marginalized and are at greater risk of experiencing violence. Survivors must feel that their complaint is being taken seriously.
The Joint Global Programme on Essential Services:
Duties and Responsibilities
The policing expert will be expected to assist national police partners to ‘operationalize’ the UN Women Handbook on Gender-Responsive Policing Services, providing the ‘how to’ and an exchange of experiences in relation to responding to VAWG in a transformational way ensuring a victim centered approach and building trust and confidence in local communities. The Handbook provides police/LE organisations with relevant and practical guidance, for them to own the problem and commit to implementation at an institutional level.
Critical to the success of the handbook will be ensuring the police/LE, at institutional level accept responsibility for its implementation and recognise the benefits it can bring, not just to victims/survivors of VAWG but also to the effectiveness of the police organisation as a whole. It is therefore vital that UN Women and the corresponding police institutions in Ethiopia can be supported by having access to a cadre of policing experts to facilitate various aspects of the handbook’s implementation.
L'expert en maintien de l'ordre devra aider les partenaires de la police nationale à "opérationnaliser" le manuel de l'ONU Femmes sur les services de police sensibles au genre, en fournissant le "comment faire" et un échange d'expériences en ce qui concerne la réponse à la VEF d'une manière transformationnelle en assurant une approche centrée sur la victime et en construisant la confiance dans les communautés locales. Le manuel fournit aux organisations de police/LE des conseils pertinents et pratiques, afin qu'elles s'approprient le problème et s'engagent à le mettre en œuvre au niveau institutionnel.
Pour que le manuel soit un succès, il est essentiel de s'assurer que la police/LE, au niveau institutionnel, accepte la responsabilité de sa mise en œuvre et reconnaisse les avantages qu'il peut apporter, non seulement aux victimes/survivantes de la VEF, mais aussi à l'efficacité de l'organisation policière dans son ensemble. Il est donc essentiel qu'ONU Femmes et les institutions de police correspondantes en Éthiopie puissent être soutenues en ayant accès à un cadre d'experts en maintien de l'ordre pour faciliter les différents aspects de la mise en œuvre du manuel.
