    Organization: ECPAT International
    Closing date: 17 Mar 2017

    Duration of Contract: Maximum 15 working days during the period May-June 2017

    Background:

    The Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism (“The Code”) is an industry-driven responsible tourism initiative with a mission to provide awareness, tools and support to the tourism industry in order to prevent the sexual exploitation of children. The Global Coordination role of the Code is implemented through ECPAT International.

    Violence against children happens everywhere, in every country and across all social groups. The Code encourages the practice of responsible, sustainable tourism by tourism companies from around the world. By enacting responsible policies, the tourism companies (“members” of The Code) play an essential role in protecting children from the sexual exploitation that is particularly prevalent in this industry. Tourism professionals therefore have the unique opportunity to stop child sex tourism within their work environments and beyond.

    In order to achieve the goal in protection, it is necessarily for people involved in this industry to have a good understanding about the issue and how to stop it. The Code’s team and local partner network provides support, guidance, best practice examples, and online tools for the industry partners to make these actions as easy and effective as possible.

    Organization: ECPAT International
    Closing date: 25 Aug 2017

    VACANCY NOTICE

    Programme Specialist Online Child Sexual Exploitation – Africa region

    Duty station Home-based, Africa

    Reports to: Head of Programme: Combatting Online Child Sexual Exploitation

    Duration of contract 21-month contract

    Grade C

    This position offers a unique opportunity for a motivated, self-starting professional to make a crucial difference in the fight against sexual exploitation of children online in the African region.

    Organizational background

    ECPAT International is a global network of civil society organizations working in 88 countries in all regions for the elimination of the sexual exploitation of children. It seeks to encourage the world community to ensure that children everywhere enjoy their fundamental rights free and secure from all forms of sexual exploitation.

    The ECPAT Secretariat is based in Bangkok, Thailand and coordinates the global work. The Secretariat develops and supports advocacy, programmes and partnership strategies to facilitate a range of initiatives across the Network to prevent and effectively respond to child sexual exploitation. In key regions, including Africa, a resident Regional Coordinator supports and guides ECPAT’s regional efforts in advocacy and Network strengthening and collaboration. In Africa the ECPAT network has member organisations in 20 countries. All member organisations are independent organisations.

    Addressing child sexual exploitation online

    The history of ECPAT International is rooted in advocacy to combat child sexual exploitation that occurs through the misuse of technologies, with successful efforts over the years to place this issue on the global agenda. In recent years, the prevalence and forms of online child sexual exploitation (OCSE) have grown dramatically around the world as a result of the rapid expansion of Internet connectivity and the digital environment. In Africa, although data and evidence remain limited, all signs point to its continued proliferation – challenging the region’s legal systems and its public and private sectors to effectively address this multi-dimensional phenomenon.

    ECPAT promotes a multi-stakeholder approach against OCSE, collaborating with civil society, law enforcement, government, intergovernmental entities and the private sector at all levels. A key focus is to promote the alignment of national legal frameworks, policies and programmes with relevant international norms and standards, as set out in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and a range of other global and regional instruments. Also critical are the standards and practices of the ICT sector (ISPs, telecom and mobile technology, IT companies) to disrupt the transmission and accessing of offending images. Analysis of these factors, and the recommendations which emerge, drive awareness creation, advocacy, capacity building and action by ECPAT, its partners and other stakeholders, in the framework support of the ‘Model National Response’ promoted globally against OCSE.

    Job purpose

    Under the guidance of the Head of the OCSE Programme and in close cooperation with the ECPAT Regional Coordinator for Africa, the Programme Specialist is responsible for legal and policy analysis, advocacy, capacity building and network development in the fight against OCSE in the region. The Specialist will be home-based in Africa, with travel in the region, working as a member of the OCSE Programme team.

    Tasks and Responsibilities
