Common information

The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) established its Regional Office for Central Asia (ROCA) in Bishkek in 2008. ROCA works to assist governments, national human rights institutions, civil society and the international community in the region to promote and protect human rights. In early 2018, ROCA Kyrgyzstan launched the Judicial and Social Equality Programme (JSEP), working towards promoting equality and combatting discrimination on all internationally protected grounds in Kyrgyzstan. The planned work includes a broad array of activities with civil society, justice and security sector institutions, national and local authorities. The project also seeks to reduce the risks of human rights violations in the context of state efforts to counter and prevent violent extremism by way of reducing discriminatory practices. The programme is funded by the European Union’s Instrument for Stability and Peace, and the United Nations Peacebuilding Fund. In order to ensure successful and coherent implementation of the Office’s Programme, ROCA requires the assistance of Programme Consultant.
