Duties and Responsibilities

1. Background of the assignment:

The United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) is a United Nations entity established in 1968 to support countries worldwide in preventing crime and facilitating criminal justice. UNICRI is mandated to assist intergovernmental, governmental and non-governmental organizations in formulating and implementing improved policies in the field of crime prevention and criminal justice.
UNICRI' s goals are:

• to advance understanding of crime-related problems;
• to foster just and efficient criminal justice systems;
• to support the respect of international instruments and other standards;
• to facilitate international law enforcement cooperation and judicial assistance.

One of the strategic priorities of UNICRI is to support the development of an integrated CBRN approach that incorporates all international, regional and national CBRN components into a common strategy. This entails the application of a holistic approach through which all stakeholders, while operating autonomously, can establish common goals, identify and manage resources to achieve these goals, clearly allocate responsibilities and tasks, elaborate functioning channels of communication, create a security culture based on common learning, and ensure that lessons learnt are incorporated and absorbed throughout the whole system.

In 2019, UNICRI launched the CONTACT Programme, aimed at building capabilities of law enforcement and intelligence officers to plan and carry out intelligence and law enforcement operations to thwart radiological and nuclear (RN) trafficking attempts. Additionally, the initiative aims at fostering regional cooperation and exchange of information related to RN trafficking investigations in different regions. The CONTACT Programme is currently being implemented in the Middle East, in the Black Sea and in the Southeast Asia regions.

With specific reference to the CONTACT Programme, the consultant will contribute to the implementation of project activities by providing specialized subject-matter expertise on training skills and training methodology.


3. Specific tasks to be performed by the consultant:

Under the supervision of the Programme Officer, the consultant will perform the following tasks:

• Review train-the-trainers (TTT) material prepared by the CONTACT project team;

• Deliver train-the-trainers sessions on training skills and methodology to intelligence and law enforcement officers from the CONTACT partner countries.
