OVERVIEW OF CTG GLOBAL

CTG support and manage humanitarian projects in fragile and conflict-affected countries around the world. With past performance in 15 countries – from the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and Central and South America – we offer a holistic fabric of project management, implementation and support. Skilled in emergency response to crises such as the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, we have the ability to act quickly (crisis response teams can be on the ground in 24 hours) and to establish structured operations in high-risk environments. CTG recruit and manage qualified, skilled teams with extensive experience operating in challenging conditions.

 

OVERVIEW OF THE POSITION

The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) is tasked with assisting the Libyan authorities in restoring public security and the rule of law, promoting inclusive political dialogue and national reconciliation, and in assisting them to embark on the drafting of a new constitution and on laying the foundation for elections.  In accordance with its mandate UNSMIL will assist Libyan authorities and institutions resulting from the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA), through technical advice and assistance to conduct a participatory, transparent, fair, inclusive and nationally owned and led reconciliation process.

 

In line with its mandate, the priorities laid down in its work plan and in keeping with the provisions of the LPA, UNSMIL and UNDP will support stakeholders to come up with a reference document with options for developing a national reconciliation strategy. The document would inform future strategy and planning purposes in matters related to national reconciliation, as part of the 18 months Peacebuilding Fund supported project.

 

The process will be in line with the UN guiding principles on transitional justice, which include transparency, inclusiveness, accountability, and respect for local customs. The UN institutional support on reconciliation is thus focused on strengthening national efforts, including through capacity-building workshops and sharing of comparative experiences, in order to conceptualize and design an inclusive and comprehensive national reconciliation strategy for Libya.

 

As national ownership and independence is critical to the success of any reconciliation process, and in follow-up to the September 2016 and January 2017 experts meetings on reconciliation and the recommendations emanating from them, UNSMIL and UNDP propose to explore potential entry points in that direction by facilitating a thematic working group exploring conflict-related detention issues in Libya, and how to include them within a national reconciliation framework and strategy.

 

GENERAL FUNCTIONS

Role objective:

The consultant will provide advice and practical support to UNSMIL and UNDP in their task of assisting the Libyan authorities, local actors and civil society organizations to design a strategy and implement a national reconciliation process ensuring a nationally owned and led process emphasizing participation, inclusiveness, accountability and transparency.

 

In particular, the consultant will assist the project to ensure that the national reconciliation strategy fully includes and addresses the issue of missing persons.

 

Expected output:

Reporting directly to the head of the Political Affairs Division (PAD) of UNSMIL, the expert will assist the mission in its task of providing technical assistance on the national reconciliation process, through his/her participation in the thematic working group on missing person organized in Tunis on 5-7 March 2018.

 

The expert’s technical assistance outputs will be expected to adhere to the UN Secretary General’s Guidance Note on Transitional Justice, which emphasizes that UN support in the area of reconciliation should promote transparent, inclusive, participatory and nationally owned and led processes appropriate to the local context. It will also adhere to the UN Convention on the Protection of All Persons Against Enforced Disappearances and all international standards and treaties in that area.

 

In particular, the consultant should prepare all outputs taking into consideration how the national reconciliation process can not only result in a legitimate institutional framework but also how it can, more generally, promote truth-seeking accountability and address the fate of the missing persons in Libya from a comprehensive legal, political and social perspective.

 

Expected products:

 

Specifically, the expert will provide the following outputs:

 

- A paper presenting the challenges of the issue of missing persons from a legal/social/political perspective in Libya: about 5-10 pages to be sent in written to UNSMIL at least 5 days before the workshop.

- Technical support in preparing the thematic meeting, including to elaborate the concept note, list of participants, outcomes of the working groups, etc.

- Full attendance, facilitation of working group and participation to the meeting organized by UNSMIL in Tunis on 5-7 March.
