|Type of Contract :||Individual Contract|
|Post Level :||National Consultant|
|Languages Required :||English|
|Duration of Initial Contract :||July - September 2019|
|Expected Duration of Assignment :||Maximum 27 expert days|
The consultancy is planned within the Economic Governance for Growth (EGG) Project (2018-2021). The Project is primarily funded by the Government of the Kingdom of Norway and co-funded and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). As part of the UNDP BiH’s Rural and Regional Development Sector’s portfolio, the EGG Project works to improve economic development opportunities in BiH and generate employment in the most promising and growth-oriented industrial sectors.
Recognizing the importance of cultural and creative sectors in ensuring the continued development of the knowledge-intensive and creative local and regional economy, the project will work with the Sarajevo Canton Ministry of Economy to design and improve the relevant regulatory framework regarding the cultural and creative industries in the canton. Therefore, the main objective od this consultancy is to provide technical support to the Sarajevo Canton Ministry of Economy in the process of preparation of the legal framework that will enable the institutionalisation and stimulate the development of cultural and creative industries in the Sarajevo Canton.
Duties and Responsibilities
The Consultant will be tasked with reviewing the relevant legal frameworks (from the EU and neighbouring countries) that regulate the sphere of cultural and creative industries, so as to take stock of prevailing trends and help identify relevant models and approaches applicable to the cantonal legal framework. The Consultant will then consult key sectoral stakeholders, public and private, soliciting their inputs on the law’s subject matter and long-term viability. Finally, the Consultant will then develop a working draft version of the law, to include providing a universal definition of the scope of cultural and creative industry, as it applies to the Sarajevo Canton.
The Consultant will be responsible for the quality of inputs as validated by the Project Team and representatives of the Cantonal Ministry of Economy.
More specifically, the Consultant will have the following tasks:
Task 1: Conduct desk research:
Firstly, the Consultant will meet with the Project Team and the Cantonal Ministry of Economy, so as to discuss the expectations for the assignment and the delivery deadlines in more detail. Subsequently, the Consultant will collect and review all relevant documentation on the subject (e.g. the study on creative industries in the Sarajevo Canton, EU policies and studies related to entrepreneurship and innovation in cultural and creative sectors, the OMC 2018 Report on the role of public policies in developing entrepreneurial and innovation potential of the cultural and creative sectors, etc.).
The Consultant will then conduct a review of relevant legal frameworks, including the general EU framework, along with at least 2 European Union Member States and 1 – 2 neighbouring countries which have a codified approach to cultural and creative industries. A brief comparative legal review paper (up to 3 pages) highlighting best approaches and trends as per practices of the European Union/pre-accession countries will be produced and presented to the Project Team and the Cantonal Ministry of Economy. The paper will also review and examine any provisions governing the creative and cultural industries contained in existing domestic legislation so as to ensure full legal harmonization.
The time foreseen for this task is 5 days.
Task 2: Conduct consultations with key stakeholders:
The Consultant will conduct consultative meetings (individual and via focus group) with representatives of the cultural and creative industries, local governments from the Sarajevo Canton and other relevant organizations (e.g. development agencies, etc.) to ensure their voice and recommendations are embedded in the law-drafting process. Before the organization of the meetings, the Consultant will prepare the list of potential participants and meeting schedules and submit it to the Project Team for approval. The Project Team will facilitate the meetings as needed.
The time foreseen for this task is 7 days.
Task 3: Develop draft law:
Based on the results of the desk research and consultative process with relevant stakeholders, the Consultant will work directly with the Sarajevo Canton Ministry of Economy on the preparation of the “Law on the Creative Industries of Sarajevo Canton”. The expert inputs and guidance will be based on the identified best approaches and practices from the European Union. The expert assistance will include support in drafting of the new Law taking into account the relevant EU legal framework, along with the definition of the creative industries that should be incorporated in the Law.
The time foreseen for this task is 15 days.
The Project Team will closely oversee service provision, in continuous coordination and collaboration with the Consultant.
