Consultant – SADC Gender-Based Violence Model Law Short Term Research inventory and compliance of existing Gender-Based Violence laws of the SADC Member States to International Laws


Department: Office of the Secretary General

Position title: 2 Consultants – SADC GBV Model Law Short Term Research

Location: Remote: Desk Review

Duration: 40 working days


1. Background

The SADC-PF Regional Women’s Parliamentary Caucus (RWPC), during the SADC-PF 44th Plenary Assembly Session, sponsored a motion to develop a model law on gender-based violence (GBV) to be utilised by SADC Member States to prevent, address and combat all forms of GBV. The law is intended to assist SADC Member States in the domestication and implementation of relevant international and regional principles, guidelines and obligations aimed at curbing the scourge of gender-based violence.

To take the important first step in developing this Model Law for the SADC Region, the RWPC convened a 2-day consultative meeting in conjunction with the SADC Secretariat, Sisters For Change, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and Plan International. The meeting took place in Johannesburg, South Africa, on 27th and 28th September 2019. The meeting brought together women parliamentarians from all SADC-PF affiliated Parliaments and representatives of SADC-PF, SADC Secretariat, UNFPA, UNAIDS, UNODC, Plan International and Sisters for Change.
