Duties and Responsibilities
1. Background of the assignment
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Regional Office for Southern Africa (ROSAF) implements a Regional Programme aimed at combating Trafficking in Persons and Smuggling of Migrants. This project is run under collaboration with the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) Secretariat. Under an EU funded Southern Africa Migration Management (SAMM) project which is a model of a ONE-UN approach collaborative effort between 4 UN development and humanitarian agencies: the ILO, the IOM, UNODC and UNHCR, whose
overall objective is to improve migration management in the Southern Africa and Indian Ocean region. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) supports Member States in domesticating the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children, and the Protocol against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Sea and Air, both protocols supplementing the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime.
Trafficking in persons and the smuggling of migrants are distinct crimes. The lines between the two may often be blurred though especially when they occur in mixed migration flows. A person may start their journey as an asylum seeker, for example, before seeking the help of smugglers and then being exploited as a victim of trafficking, while in need of refugee protection. According to the SADC regional statistical report (2004-2016), approximately 1,217 victims of TIP were officially reported to law enforcement agencies in the SADC region during the period 2004- 2016/7. It is believed that this is just a small proportion of cases of trafficking in persons as a number of cases are not identified and therefore, not reported. This is largely because of the complex and hidden nature of the crime. There are also cases where victims are rescued but are not interested in cooperating with law enforcement for purposes of investigation and prosecution of the offence.
The Programme also just launched the Trafficking in Persons Case Digest, which is a compendium of cases from the Region. This will require dissemination, through trainings, to Criminal Justice Practitioners.
In that regard, UNODC requires the services of a consultant (Legal Expert) to support the strengthening of research, data collection and implementation of activities on combating trafficking in persons and smuggling of migrants as well as supporting multi-disciplinary trainings for criminal justice practitioners in the SADC Region especially in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Mauritius and Madagascar.
The consultant will significantly support the enhancement of SAMM TIP and SOM activities in the DRC and with broader SADC.

The purpose of the assignment is to support the d data collection as well as delivery of multi-disciplinary anti-trafficking in persons and anti-smuggling of migrants’ trainings in the Francophone speaking countries of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Mauritius and Madagascar on victim centered investigations, prosecutions and adjudication through provision of training expertise, as well as undertaking research on trafficking in persons and smuggling of migrants in these respective countries. The consultant will also provide technical support towards the implementation of activites at SADC level including in the planning and execution of regional meetings.
3. Specific tasks to be performed by the consultant
