Summary

Centre for African Justice, Peace and Human Rights is currently recruiting Legal Research Interns/Volunteers to commence a full-time or part-time position.

Detailed description

This position will require substantial legal research and analysis relating to International Criminal law, Human Rights, International Humanitarian Law, Rule of law and gender issues in domestic jurisdictions located in Africa.

 Applicants

must hold, or be studying towards, an undergraduate or a postgraduate degree in

or related to Law, Criminal law, Human Rights or Gender Studies. Applicants

must be comfortable with analyzing and synthesizing complex legal information

on ICL cases, sexual violence, and legal developments in international criminal

law and domestic criminal law.

The Intern/Volunteer will assist the Foundation with researching, drafting, analyzing and editing legal texts, statutes, articles and reports related to sexual violence perpetrated against the male gender in selected African countries. The person will support the work of the Foundation in developing a database and organizing conferences. The person will assist the Foundation in maintaining relationships and communicating with funding partners for sexual violence projects and other stakeholders. The person may be called upon to assist in developing funding proposals, policy proposals and other communications materials (e.g. newsletters, opinion editorials and blog posts, case analysis and policy briefings.) The person may, from time to time, suggest ways of sharing our research findings on sexual violence with diverse partners and other foundations working on sexual violence within Europe and Africa. When necessary, the person will be invited to represent the organization at external meetings and events and his/her contributions will be acknowledged in publications.

Applications will be accepted and treated on a rolling basis; applicants are, therefore, advised to apply at their earliest convenience via [email protected]

About Centre for African Justice, Peace and Human Rights

How best can people know their rights or claim same except through awareness, education and training. How best can people learn to maintain peace? How best can justice be promoted and applied? To an extent the answers to these questions revolve around information, education, campaign, capacity building, training and awareness. At Centre for African Justice, our objective is to promote justice, peace and human rights through information, education, advocacy, awareness, empowerment, training, outreach and capacity building in Africa and around the world. The objective of our project on sexual violence perpetrated against the male gender is to push for improved recognition and legal protection of male victims of sexual violence in Africa and around the world. We hope to create a community of male victims of sexual violence with the aim of empowering them (physically, economically, academically, emotionally, spiritually and psychologically). We believe that in the near future, such victims can serve as tools to break the silence surrounding sexual violence perpetrated against men and boys in the world.

Core activity
1) Prosecuting sexual violence perpetrated against the male gender (In conflict - and peace situations)
2) Legal research with possibility of field work
3) Capacity building of prosecutors, lawyers and judges in Africa
4) Women empowerment
5) Promotion of peace
6) Education
