Gender & Family Violence Adviser - Pacific Judicial Strengthening Initiative

The Government of New Zealand is funding the Pacific Judicial Strengthening Initiative (PJSI), which will be implemented by the Federal Court of Australia between June 2016 and June 2021.
The goal of PJSI is to build fairer societies by supporting the courts in 14 Pacific Island Countries (PICs) to develop more accessible, just, efficient and responsive justice services. These PICs are the Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. Re-inclusion of Fiji in PJSI activities will also be explored over the course of the Initiative at MFAT’s direction. PJSI reports continuously to the Chief Justices of these PICs and to the Pacific Judicial Conference which convenes biennially.
PJSI will address numerous and diverse needs of the courts that relate to three major development challenges. These are: (i) expanding access to justice to and through the courts; (ii) building competent provision of substantive justice outcomes; and (iii) increasing efficient delivery of procedural justice services. To address these challenges, PJSI will focus on supporting two long-term objectives, or components: a) Judicial Leadership  courts are capable of leading and managing change. b) Performance  court services are accessible, responsive, fair and efficient.
PJSI will deliver services to support the courts to attain these objectives using strategies to transfer, build, devolve and localise capacity. These strategies will consolidate five thematic areas, being: judicial leadership, access to justice, professionalisation, substantive justice and procedural justice.
a. Aim: The aim of this thematic cluster of activities is to measurably improve the accessibility and responsiveness of court services to victims of gender and family violence (GFV), and victims’ satisfaction with courts and justice outcomes according to law.
b. Purpose: Noting the severe and pandemic levels of GFV across the region as measured against global benchmarks, the purpose of this specific activity is to address the need for courts to apply the rule of law, be more accessible and responsive in delivering improved substantive justice outcomes.
c. Duration and location: This short-term assignment requires the Adviser to work up to 146 input-days in and remotely with at least 6 PIC(s) between September 2016 and March 2019.
d. General approach: The Adviser will adopt the following general approach to completing this assignment:
a) To transfer, build, devolve and localise capacity in all interactions with counterparts and mentor counterparts where appropriate in a culturally appropriate and respectful manner.
b) Produce high quality, concise and accurate documentation, reports, and correspondence as required in a timely fashion and written in plain English.
