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.
Millions of women and girls worldwide suffer from some form of gender-based violence and harmful practices, be it domestic violence, rape, female genital mutilation/cutting, dowry-related killing, trafficking, sexual violence in conflict-related situations, son preference and the undervaluing of daughters, or other manifestations of abuse. In fact, for women and girls aged 16-44, gender-based violence is a major cause of death and disability. Up to 70 per cent of women experience violence in their lifetime. Violence against women persists in every country in the world as a pervasive violation of human rights and a major impediment to achieving gender equality. Such violence is unacceptable, whether perpetrated by the State and its agents or by family members or strangers, in the public or private sphere, in peacetime or in times of conflict.
UN Women has been supporting national partners in Georgia to address violence against women and girls and domestic violence (VAWG/DV) since 2010. Throughout the past decade, technical assistance has been provided to the Government of Georgia to align national legislation and policies with the relevant international legal frameworks and standards, create specialized services for survivors, develop capacities of service providers and raise awareness of the phenomenon of VAWG/DV.
Perpetrator programmes are important elements of an integrated and comprehensive approach to preventing and combating violence against women, which, in turn, should be part of a comprehensive national policy or strategy. The Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (hereinafter Istanbul Convention) ratified by Georgia in 2017, embeds such programmes in a wider strategy to prevent violence against women and requires states parties to invest in programmes for domestic violence perpetrators (Article 16).
More specifically, the Istanbul Convention requires parties to the convention to establish or support the establishment of programmes, where they do not exist, or support any existing programmes, for perpetrators of domestic violence. Preventive intervention and treatment programmes have been developed to help perpetrators change their attitudes and behavior in order to prevent further acts of domestic violence and sexual violence.
The first domestic violence perpetrator behavioral correction programme in Georgia was developed by for the National Probation Agency in 2015 with UN Women’s support. The programme is based on the Spanish Intervention Programme for the Rehabilitation of GBV Perpetrators (PRIA and PRIA MA) and is administered in the probation system of Georgia since 2016. A pilot programme within the penitentiary system for inmates convicted for violent crimes has been implemented since 2019 in two penitentiaries. Due to the pandemic-related restrictions, the correction programmes in Georgia have been put on hold.
In the scope of an EU-funded project – “EU for Gender Equality: Together against Gender Stereotypes and Gender-based Violence”, in order to strengthen the existing behavior correction programmes, eliminate any gaps and shortcomings in the relevant regulatory framework and practice and continue administering them in due course, UN Women is seeking to commission two local experts, one specialized in the probation and the other in the penitentiary context. More specifically, the local experts will be responsible to respond to the following objective: strengthening, institutionalization and promoting sustainability of the existing domestic violence perpetrator behavioral correction programmes.
