5 Steps to get a job in the United Nations

Work LocationGeneva Expected durationSep 2024 to Feb 2025 Duties and ResponsibilitiesHiring office functional mandate: Enhancing participation and protecting civic space is one of the key pillars and shifts of the OHCHR's Management Plan. The Civic Space Unit's focuses on 5 priority areas: 1. Support regional and in-country initiatives to protect Human Rights Defenders (HRDs): We will map out protection practices, initiate pilot country projects, promote and support regional and national โ€œprotection hubsโ€, share good practices and lessons learned, support legal and policymaking processes at the country level. 2. Support strategic field engagement on civic space: We will convene key actors to develop joined up strategies and surge capacity to respond in a timely manner to urgent situations, threats or opportunities, where human rights actors were ill prepared to mitigate, otherwise, often predictable threats to civic space. 3. Monitoring of civic space and the situation of HRDs: We will develop a practical monitoring framework to track civic space trends and the situation of HRDs, including in relation to the SDG16 indicators, and to increase our capacity to collect, analyse, report and communicate data on an ongoing basis. 4. Mainstreaming civic space and protection in UN system: We will elevate civic space, participation and protection work within UN system in a coherent and coordinated way, by mapping UN policies and practices, sharing experiences, addressing reprisals, and supporting UN leadership and country teams. 5. Building public support for civic space and HRDs: We will bring greater visibility and understanding regarding the essential role of HRDs among the broader public, including by working with wide range of HRDs and creating sustainable and easy-to-use pathways for business actors to support HRDs. OHCHR has a unique role to play to take on this global challenge through a new multi-dimensional initiative to: โ€ข strengthen good protection practices, including protection networks; โ€ข raise the visibility and increase support for the work of defenders and influence the narrative; โ€ข monitor civic space trends and situation of HRDs; โ€ข and mainstream civic space in the wider UN policies, practices and operational activities. OHCHR will also pursue its efforts to lead the UN system-wide efforts to mitigate reprisals against those who cooperated, cooperates or seeks to cooperate with the UN system on human rights.
