Eager to tell you about the MOOC  on Gender Based violence in the context of migration!

The course will begin on May 15!

what is a MOOC? a MOOC is Massive Online Open Course , that is offered for free by the Global Campus of Human Rights coordinated by the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC).

The Mooc addresses gender, migration, and Human rights studies. The Lecture I participate in, is related to gender based violence faced by migrants and asylum seeking girls in the MENA region. The Political Sciences Institute (ISP) of Saint Joseph University part of the Arab Master in Democracy and Human Rights,  has worked hard while dedicating a team to gather data, prepare, review, shoot, edit and produce the MOOC on GBV addressed by migrants girls and women in the region.  Examples for this specific lecture are taken from the newest published reports in the region related to GBV and SGBV.  Sexual Exploitation, trafficking  Statelessness, Child Marriage, Schooling and access to education are presented. Also main International Instruments addressing GBV are presented.

The MOOC is a free course of 5 hours per week, for 6 weeks, that is open to “upper year undergraduates; postgraduates; NGO activists and practitioners interested in interdisciplinary human rights, gender equality, women’s empowerment, migration; young lawyers and social scientists; active and motivated citizens from around the world.”

I am very excited to be part of this Global Campus MOOC, and to have prepared the first MOOC addressing GBV and women’s rights in the region. Can’t thank enough the team who helped put all the lecture together (ISP team you rock! )  as well as the friends who helped gather the latest information in a very short deadline. (Special thanks to Ghida, Hayat, Raghda, Zeina, Myriam, and special thanks to Jihad who filmed and edited the lecture ).

For those interested here is the TOR posted by UNFPA for the development of facilitator’s modules  on stigma and discrimination against PLHIV and preventing/responding to GBV.

Rita.

———————————–

TOR  – Development of Facilitator’s Modules for Two Thematic Areas

 Terms of Reference (TOR)
 
Development of Facilitator’s Modules for Two Thematic Areas
United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)
   Lebanon 
BACKGROUND
In line with its strategic plan to increase young people’s access to comprehensive, gender sensitive, quality, sexual and reproductive health services and information, and specifically within the framework of the “Let’s Talk Campaign” , UNFPA partnered with the NGO VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts Association) for carrying out the “72 Hours Movie Challenge” contest in 2013 and 2014. The themes of the contest were on “Stigma and Discrimination against people living with HIV” (PLHIV) and “Preventing/Responding to Gender Based Violence” (GBV) in 2013 and 2014 respectively.  Young people competed for the production of the movies within 72 hours (or 3 days). Three winning movies were selected under each theme by a renowned panel of Lebanese producers, directors and actors.
Based on the above, there exist therefore 6 winning short movies that depict realities, reflections and messages on the 2 thematic areas. The diversity and richness of information within the 6 movies should certainly be utilized as a complementary tool and/or multiplier effect to reach a wide range of young people and through different approaches.
OBJECTIVE
The objective of the consultancy is to develop two facilitator’s modules for each of the 2 thematic areas i.e. stigma and discrimination against PLHIV and preventing/responding to GBV.
These 2 modules will be used by facilitators (who could consist of young leaders, trainers, teachers, peer educators, etc.) during awareness raising sessions within various youth settings. The outcome is expected to contribute to preparing the grounds for engaging in appropriate discussions and interactions among the participants on various HIV/AIDS and GBV related issues. It is anticipated that increased knowledge and discussion among young people on these issues would contribute to more positive attitudes as well as engaging in safe, responsible and harmless practices.
The rationale for the production of two facilitator’s modules is to make efficient and optimal use of the winning movies by a trained and capable person facilitating awareness-raising sessions with young people, in different settings (i.e. schools, clubs, camps, etc.). The consultancy will be undertaken in close collaboration with UNFPA and consultation with VAPA.
PROCESS
The UNFPA office will initiate the undertaking of the assignment by engaging a national consultant and in accordance with the agreed upon terms of reference.  The identification of the consultant will be made by UNFPA on basis of agreed upon criteria and requirements as per required qualifications (see Qualification section below).
TASKS
The consultant’s main tasks will consist of (a) undertaking desk review and literature search of pertinent resources as well as similar material, (b) reviewing the six movies (3 for each topic) and related scenarios, (c) carrying out consultation and meetings with the production team/actors, UNFPA and VAPA, (d) developing a structured framework for the modules, and (e) finalizing the modules based on testing and feedback by UNFPA.
Specifically, the consultant will undertake the following key tasks for achieving the objective of this consultancy:
  • Draw up a plan of action and timetable for accomplishing the tasks of the consultancy;
  • Undertake desk review – including internet search –  and investigate/review similar resources developed/used in the country and/or the region;
  • Prepare a period of consultation/interview with the various partners/stakeholders;
  • Consult with UNFPA, VAPA, the script writers and production teams;
  • Develop a framework and structure for each of the two modules (i.e. PLHIV and GBV) on basis of literature review and consultation;
  • Elaborate content of each module;
  • Prepare and ensure timely delivery of the first draft of the 2 modules for review by UNFPA;
  • Pre-test the modules through the undertaking of focus group discussions with young people from different regions as deemed necessary for obtaining feedback including views and opinions of potential user (to be organized and supported by UNFPA);
  • Finalize the two modules on basis of comments received from the field and from UNFPA; and
  • Provide UNFPA office with an electronic and hard copy of the final modules (Arabic);
  • Proof read the final text once the graphic designer has worked on the layout.
DELIVRABLES
The consultant shall provide the following deliverables which will consist of the final outcomes for this consultancy:
  • The final version of the facilitator’s modules in Arabic in both soft and hard copies for each of the 2 thematic areas (i.e. HIV and GBV).
It is suggested that each of the 2 modules includes the following sections (around 15-20 pages); a two pages background; a one page lesson plan for each activity, and two-three pages note for the facilitator:
1. Background
  • This section is suggested to include a definition on the topic, a brief situation analysis about the magnitude of the topic, statistics about the subject matter, some information about national efforts and systems, main players in the country, etc.
2. One activity for screening the movie
  • This activity aims at introducing the topic and engaging participants in a discussion covering the topic dealt with. It could be about expressing opinions, feelings and thoughts. It could also be about characters from the movies, the way they behaved, acted, etc.
3. Two activities to address general information on the related topic
  • Two activities on attitudes and perceptions about the related topic
  • Two activities on the political environment (legislative, political, etc.)
  • A facilitator’s note for each section
It should be noted that the content of each module can serve one or all three movies under each thematic area (i.e. HIV and GBV).
TIMEFRAME
The duration of the entire consultancy is for 8 weeks starting from the date of the signature of the contract.
QUALIFICATIONS
  • Advanced University degree in social/development sciences or other related areas with previous work experience and considerable skills in training material development

Vacancy Announcement Nb.: VA-FPA-LBN-2014-07
Vacancy Date: October 20, 2014
Closing Date: November 2, 2014

1. Organizational Location
The incumbent (i.e. GBV IMS National Coordinator) will be based partly at UNHCR Beirut Office, partly at UNFPA Country Office, according to a time division agreement between the two Agencies. He/she will undertake regular in-country travels to the five regions where the project is implemented: Akkar, Tripoli, Bekaa, South Lebanon and Mount Lebanon.
The incumbent will work under the umbrella of the national SGBV Task Force chaired by UNHCR and co-chaired by UNFPA and UNICEF. She/he will report to the SGBV Task Force Coordinator.
The incumbent will plan deliverables and priorities in collaboration with the chair and the two co-chairs of the SGBV Task Force and will keep them regularly informed of all programmatic and technical aspects of the Job Description. All administrative related matters will be reported to UNFPA, as the recruiting Agency.
The incumbent will work in close cooperation and coordination with the inter-agency GBV IMS Coordinator at the national level, as well as with the Field SGBV Coordinators in the five regions.
2. Job Purpose
The Gender-Based Violence Information Management System (GBVIMS) was created to harmonize data collection on GBV in humanitarian settings, to provide a simple system for actors providing services to GBV survivors to collect, store and analyze their data and to enable the safe and ethical sharing of reported GBV incident data within and between relevant entities. The intention of the GBVIMS is both to assist service providers to better understand the GBV cases being reported as well as to enable actors to share data internally across project sites and externally with agencies for broader trends analysis and improved GBV coordination and response.
In Lebanon, increasing concerns regarding the ongoing conflict in Syria and spill-over of persons of concern into the country prompted the SGBV Task Force to consider means and modalities to improve data collection and analysis. In January 2013, a pilot GBV IMS roll-out was launched in Akkar (North Lebanon). In July 2013, the GBV IMS Global Team supported the progressive extension of the phased roll-out to the other regions in Lebanon. As of today, the 6 GBV specialized service providers (IRC, DRC, INTERSOS, IMC, Caritas, Makhzoumi) are using the system in the 5 above mentioned regions. An Information-Sharing Protocol endorsed by the Task Force in October 2013 allows the national compilation of a limited set of data.
In order to reinforce the dissemination of good practices and increase the quality and the quantity of GBV data available, the Government of Canada is funding a two-year project “Developing Field Level GBV Capacity for Improved Service Delivery, Information Management and Inter-Agency Coordination” in 6 countries, including Lebanon. As part of this project, the incumbent will be responsible for supporting the roll-out and driving the successful implementation of the GBV IMS in Lebanon, under the supervision of the SGBV Task Force Coordinator and the guidance of UNHCR, UNFPA and UNICEF.
