Duties and Responsibilities

1. Background of the Assignment

As the global guardian of the United Nations standards and norms in crime prevention and criminal justice, UNODC is mandated to support Member States in upholding the rule of law, promoting crime prevention and effective, fair, humane and accountable criminal justice systems. Within the framework of the UNODC Regional Programme for Eastern Africa (2016-2021), and in close cooperation with the Regional Section for Africa and the Middle East at UNODC headquarters, the Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CPCJ) Programme seeks to implement these objectives through support to major justice reforms processes undertaken by East African States.

In line with this mandate, the UNODC project ‘Strengthening the Administration of Justice and operationalising alternatives to imprisonment in Kenya’ aims to support the Government of Kenya to strengthen efficiency in delivery of judicial services, enhance coordination within the criminal justice sector and widen the use and application of alternatives to imprisonment. The project is designed to implement a part of the Programme for Legal Aid and Empowerment in Kenya (PLEAD). The Programme is funded by the European Union and targets the counties with the five largest urban centres in the country (Kisumu, Mombasa, Nairobi, Nakuru and Uasin Gishu) and seven counties of the most marginalised area within the country (Garissa, Isiolo, Lamu, Mandera, Marsabit, Tana River and Wajir).
The UNODC led PLEAD component centers on the following outcomes:

1. Court administration and case management strengthened
2. Increased quality and efficiency in the criminal justice system
3. Improved coherence and co-operation within the justice sector

The PLEAD component implemented by UNODC targets support to the following institutions in the justice chain (national partners):

i. The National Council on the Administration of Justice (NCAJ);
ii. The Judiciary;
iii. The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP);
iv. The Probation and Aftercare Service (PACS);
v. The Witness Protection Agency (WPA).

The Judiciary is an independent arm of the government, established under Chapter 10 of the Constitution of Kenya. Its vision is to be the independent custodian of justice in Kenya, while its mission is to deliver justice fairly, impartially, and expeditiously, promote equal access to justice, and advance local jurisprudence by upholding the rule of law.
In line with the PLEAD outcomes above, UNODC seeks to support the Judiciary, and in particular the Office of the Chief Justice (OCJ) in fulfilling the Chief Justice’s Social Transformation Through Access to Justice (STAJ) vision for an “independent, efficient, accessible, responsive to the aspirations of Kenyans and a true guardian of the rule of law.” This vision is anchored in the Judiciary’s reform agenda outlined in the Judiciary Transformation Framework (JTF) and Sustaining Judiciary Transformation (SJT). UNODC will support OCJ with a Programme Officer to coordinate and monitor the implementation of OCJ’s programmes and activities pursuant to the STAJ vision.

2. Purpose of the Assignment

The Individual Contractor will undertake all assigned tasks related to the implementation of PLEAD activities in the Office Chief Justice.

The Individual Contractor will work under the overall supervision of the Regional Representative and direct supervision of the Head of the Criminal Justice Programme UNODC ROEA, within the framework of the UNODC Regional Programme for Eastern Africa (2016-2021).
