WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM ADVISOR
KABUL, AFGHANISTAN

The Asia Foundation/ Women Empowerment Program/ Afghanistan seeks an advisor to provide technical assistance and support for a three year project funded by the Royal Netherlands Embassy of Afghanistan to implement Support for Non-State Justice Providers and Advocates for Peace in Afghanistan project. The Support for Non-State Justice Providers and Advocates for Peace in Afghanistan project contains two complementary components which will focus on: 1) enhancing the efficacy and responsiveness of the informal justice sector within Kunduz province - with a focus on the protection and promotion of women's rights - by building the capacity of non-state justice providers and strengthening coordination between state and non-state justice mechanisms; and 2) establishing community-based Advocates for Peace Groups (APGs) in four provinces (Kunduz, Parwan, Bamyan and Balkh) committed to acting as agents for resolving conflicts at the local level and promoting inclusive and participatory strategies to mitigate conflict and promote peace and social reconciliation. The two components of the project have been designed to contribute to the long-term goal of stabilizing Afghanistan using a 'bottom up' approach, through enhanced access to justice and the promotion of inclusive and meaningful peacebuilding strategies. The objectives of the project include: 1) Developing the capacity of non-state justice providers in Kunduz province, particularly in relation to enhancing their ability to understand legal concepts and protect and promote women's rights; 2) Enhancing coordination between State and non-state justice sector providers in Kunduz province; 3) Establishing community-based APGs and building their capacity to resolve local- level disputes and promoting social reconciliation and sustainable peace in four provinces; and 4) Fostering linkages between relevant stakeholders to promote synergy in peacebuilding and social reconciliation efforts. The expected results of the Support for Non-State Justice Providers and Advocates for Peace in Afghanistan project include: Increased knowledge of relevant national laws and principles of human rights among non-state justice sector actors and increased capacity among these providers to analyze conflicts and mediate cases to aid in resolving disputes in a just and equitable manner; Easier access among women to the non-state justice sector as both claimants and agents of change, and greater sensitivity to women's rights among informal justice providers, leading to more satisfactory resolution of women's disputes; Strengthened coordination between the state and non-state justice sectors at the local level in order to facilitate increased access to justice and the speedy and just resolution of disputes; Increased linkages and understanding between the state and non-state justice providers cognizant of the fact that improved understanding promotes improved access to justice for all Afghans.
