The Tuvalu Constitutional Review Project (TCRP) is a 3-year project supporting the government and people of Tuvalu to review their National Constitution considering past socio-economic and political challenges. The project provides the required technical expertise and independent advice through constitutional experts to ensure the constitutional review is more technically proficient, inclusive, participatory and transparent; and also conforms to international treaties and conventions, in particular with regards to human rights. Of paramount importance amidst is the need to also fully account for the traditional norms and culture of the people of Tuvalu. This process is expected to result in a more informed citizenry and a constitution with text that reflects the needs and aspirations of the Tuvalu people. Furthermore, it is expected that the process will result in a constitution that provides more accountable and effective government (constitution better equipped to deal with past political crisis), a citizenry that is better able to hold leaders to account, stronger social cohesion, and more sustainable development. The overall goal of the project hence is to ensure that citizens of Tuvalu and key governance institutions are empowered to better understand the constitutional review process and underlying issues through effective civic education and engagement during the constitutional review, which is undertaken in an open, transparent and inclusive manner. Since the inception of the Project, there has been a comprehensive civic education campaign that has been delivered via radio and face-to-face modes to the outer island communities. The Project has facilitated two major outreach consultations to all outer islands, including reaching out to the Tuvaluan diaspora in Fiji and New Zealand as well. In February 2018, a major workshop was held in Sydney titled “Comparative Constitutional Design Workshop” which provided the CRC and CRC Secretariat members access to leading constitutional experts to develop options pertaining to the various constitutional provisions to take to the people.
In respect of the above, the Project is seeking two Constitutional Legal Drafters (1 x International and 1 x National) to be based in Funafuti, Tuvalu to support the Constitutional Review Committee (CRC) and the CRC Secretariat. The consultants will support the constitutional review by drafting amendments based on the direction of the CRC and the CRC Secretariat taking into account the results of two major outreach phases, various internal and external reports and papers, and international, regional and national best practices. The Consultants are expected to provide the highest levels of technical legal drafting, provide continued advisory support to the CRC Chair, Members and the CRC Secretariat team; and use the highest levels of integrity, transparency and respect for the national led process as well as for traditional values, norms and customs of Tuvalu.
Duties and Responsibilities
