Background
UNDP Nepal is working with government agencies, national human rights institutions, and civil society organizations, to implement a Strengthening the Rule of Law and Human Rights Protection System in Nepal' Programme (the ROLHR ). The ROLHR programme aims to ensure that women and vulnerable groups are able to benefit from a protective legal framework and many recent improvements in the field of administration of justice. The ROLHR will do so through a 'three pronged' approach. First, it will develop the capacity of vulnerable groups to access rule of law institutions and assert and enjoy their rights and entitlements. Second, it will support rule of law institutions to be more responsive to increased demands for justice service delivery, including in a changed context. Third, it will support the civil society as well as human rights actors, institutions, and media to work together to ensure accountability for justice service delivery.
To strengthen the administration of justice, the ROLHR will support the development of a justice sector reform process, through which rule of law institutions will define their own priorities and identify measures to effectively address them. The Programme will support justice sector institutions to conduct pilots to identify 'what is needed' and 'what works', and then to institutionalize successful pilot initiatives throughout Nepal, including through the development of research, planning, monitoring and evaluation capacities.
To strengthen access to justice, the ROLHR will also support: the revision of laws and development of human resource capacities needed to implement penal legislation, anti-gender based violence, caste based discrimination, and corruption legislation; an 'affirmative action' law degree scholarship and internship scheme through which vulnerable groups currently not well represented in the legal profession can obtain a law degree and practical work experience; and the development of a relevant, accessible and integrated socio-legal aid scheme, which will provide support to enable vulnerable groups to assert and enjoy their rights in civil and criminal cases, including poverty-reducing entitlements such as inheritance, pensions, education allowances, health and legal services.
The programme will also support to strengthen the human rights system working in the area of transitional justice and capacity building part of the national institutions for example, National Women's Commission, and the National Dalit Commission.

It is intended that this component will result in the development of a national strategy for justice sector reform in Nepal, supported by a multi-donor funding mechanism. The programme will support the Ministry of Law, Justice, Constituent Assembly and Parliamentary Affairs (MoLJCAPA) to lead reform of Nepal's legal aid landscape, towards the establishment of an integrated system which coordinates and regulates relevant, accessible socio-legal aid service provision throughout Nepal. The ROLHR Programme will support the MoLJCAPA to lead revision of legislation not aligned with the constitution and international human rights instruments to which the Government of Nepal is a State Party.

Background
Candidates who previously applied need not apply again.
UNDP along with UN Women is working with Supreme Court of Nepal, Government Agencies, National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) i.e. National Women's Commission and National Dalit Commission, and civil society organizations to implement the 'Strengthening the Rule of Law and Human Rights Protection System in Nepal' Programme (the Programme). The Programme aims to ensure that women and other vulnerable groups are able to benefit from a protective legal framework and many recent improvements in the field of administration of justice and will do so through a 'three pronged' approach. First, the Programme will develop the capacity of vulnerable groups to access rule of law institutions and assert and enjoy their rights and entitlements. Second, it will support rule of law institutions to be more responsive to increased demands for justice service delivery, including in a fluctuating political context. Third, it will support civil society as well as human rights actors, institutions, and media to work together to ensure accountability for justice service delivery in Nepal.
To strengthen the administration of justice, the Programme will support the development of a justice sector reform process, through which rule of law institutions will define their own priorities and identify measures to effectively address them.
The Programme will also support the revision of laws in line with constitution and national as well as international human rights standards and development of the human resource capacities needed to implement penal legislation and laws related to anti-gender based violence, caste based discrimination, and corruption; an 'affirmative action' law degree scholarship and internship scheme through which vulnerable groups currently not well represented in the legal profession can obtain a law degree and practical work experience; and the development of a relevant, accessible and integrated socio-legal aid scheme, which will provide support to enable vulnerable groups to assert and enjoy their rights in civil and criminal cases, including poverty-reducing entitlements such as inheritance, pensions, education allowances, health and legal services.
To support a holistic and victim-centric transitional justice process in Nepal, the Programme will support the Government of Nepal for establishing the transitional justice mechanism(s) that is aligned with international standards and will strengthen the criminal justice system so as to ensure that the system has the capacity to address conflict-related issues and human rights violations in Nepal. These efforts will develop sustainable complementarity between the criminal justice system and the established transitional justice mechanism(s) so resolution for conflict-era violations is reached and the grounds for peace are laid.
The Transitional Justice Officer will be responsible for implementation of activities under this component of the Programme, including activities aimed at developing capacity within the criminal justice system and supporting victim rights groups and CSOs, in close collaboration with the Chief Technical Advisor (RoLHR). Additionally, the incumbent will be responsible for helping relevant Government agencies and line-ministries � particularly the Ministry of Peace and Reconstruction ('MoPR') � the Office of the Attorney General ('OAG') and judiciary to identify, develop and pursue policy options for a holistic and victim-centric transitional justice process to augment the long-term policy impact of the Programme.
