CONSULTANCY ANNOUNCEMENT
Post Title Consultant: Human Trafficking
Agency: United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC)
Regional Centre for East Asia and the Pacific
Project: XSP/J18 – Technical Assistance for Regional
Cooperation and Interagency Collaboration
Country of Assignment Home-based with travel to GMS countries
Duration
Thirty (30) working days. The assignment is expected to
start in November 2010
Application Deadline: 4 November 2010
1) GENERAL BACKGROUND
Project: XSP/J18 (Technical Assistance for Regional Cooperation and Interagency Collaboration)
is established to allow the Regional Centre to develop a Regional Programme of technical
cooperation and advisory services which responds strategically, yet flexibly, to human security
challenges posed by drugs, crime and terrorism in the East Asia and Pacific region
This sub-activity supports the objectives of UNODC Project GLO T59 to establish an
international reporting system for human trafficking cases. It aims to collect information on
human trafficking prosecutions and court decisions (derived from court, administrative and public
record, and other Government-endorsed sources), compile this in a public database, and
ultimately establish and develop a sustainable system for collecting and disseminating such
information (and, accordingly, national legal interpretations relating to the Convention and the
Protocol).
The rationale is that, while ratification of the UN Trafficking In Persons Protocol has been strong,
Member States have been slow to fully implement the Protocol, especially with regard to
enforcement of the law. This is evidenced than by the low level of convictions reported worldwide
for human trafficking. Further, with regard to those prosecutions that are undertaken, very
little is currently known at the international level how practitioners use law to combat trafficking;
what, if any, are the characteristics of successful prosecutions; and how effective the Protocol and
derived legislation have been.
At its most basic level, this initiative aims to collect and disseminate officially recognised details
of human trafficking cases to promote greater awareness, recognition and common understanding
of this crime, its impact on individuals and the responses being made.
2) OBJECTIVES OF THE ASSIGNMENT
The primary objective of this assignment is to provide research and substantive expect support in
the elaboration and sustainability of the case law reporting system. Having such an international
reporting system in place will in turn increase the number of prosecutions and convictions for
human trafficking globally, by collecting and disseminating qualitative information regarding the
prosecution of human trafficking activities and the effective implementation of the Trafficking
Protocol.
Work has already begun on drawing together a number of cases from around the world, and
creating abstracts for inclusion in the data base using an already developed template for the
purpose. Details of more than 200 cases from over 30 countries have been collected and included
in the database.
Collection of case data needs to continue, and in order to give the system sustainability a number
of global correspondents need to be identified who are prepared to continue to provide relevant
material in future.
An Expert Group Meeting (EGM) will take place in late January 2011 to
(i) to ask experts to conduct an editorial and substantive review of the case
material and reports;
(ii) to seek feedback on the proposed structure and processes for the reporting
system, and technical issues related to collection, inclusion and publication of
information from different jurisdictions and legal regimes;
(iii) to build a network of experts and institutions to support the development of the
database, and potentially act as a editorial and review committee for future
content and derived products.
Prior to the EGM, a draft collection of case reports and a guideline document (which outlines the
strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats connected to the project) will be completed. A
framework for this paper has already been completed.
3) SCOPE OF WORK
Reporting to the Expert (Human Trafficking) based in Bangkok, the consultant will be required to

Reporting System for Human Trafficking Cases through the creation of a network of
correspondents
• from among those stakeholders, identifying trafficking experts able to attend and
