About International Development Law Organization (IDLO):


The International Development Law Organization (IDLO) is an inter-governmental development organization with headquarters in Rome and program offices in Kabul and several other provinces in Afghanistan. IDLO fulfills its mandate by providing training, technical assistance, research, and publication to governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), local communities, and professional associations in developing countries, countries in economic transition, and countries emerging from armed conflict. IDLO began working in Afghanistan in 2001 and has become a leading partner of Afghan government, donor countries and international agencies to achieve the common goal of strengthening the rule of law. Afghanistan has been an IDLO Member Country since 2012.

Job Summary:

IDLO is currently implementing a project called “Reducing the Impact of Insecurity on Afghanistan’s Legal System (RIIALS)” which is funded by the U.S Department of State Bureau of International Narcotics & Law Enforcement (INL). The project aims to support the justice sector of Afghanistan in improving policies and practices, and designing new programs to ameliorate the impacts of insecurity on the operations of the justice institutions. As a part of this program, IDLO will conduct an Insecurity Impact Assessment (IIA), that will assess the current status of the justice sector’s accessibility and inclusiveness, and explore the impact of insecurity on the development of the justice system.

The IIA will be conducted in eight provinces, including the provinces of Jawzjan and Takhar and will consist of in-depth interviews and focus group discussions with experts in organizations that have experience working with the legal sector of Afghanistan. Focus group discussions will be held to help IDLO learn more about the existing policies, practices, and interventions aimed at reducing the impact of insecurity on the justice sector and potential interventions that could be introduced to improve access to justice, professional capacity development and women’s meaningful participation in the justice sector.

Under the guidance of the RIIALS researcher team, the IIA Provincial Consultant will conduct two focus group discussions and draft reports of the key findings of each discussion.
