Calls for experts to research and write information for stakeholders’ submission to the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Lebanon

Minority Rights Group International is seeking experts to research and write information for stakeholders’ submission to Universal Periodic Review (UPR), capturing the human rights situation with the focus on Freedom of Religion and Belief in Lebanon.

The submission will investigate the human rights situations in Lebanon for the last 4½ years.  The expert is encouraged to use their initiative in investigating any human rights violations and in providing examples of these issues to demonstrate that information is first-hand, and not exclusively media information. The draft will follow the format of OHCHR’s summary of stakeholders’ information and will include information on the implementation of the accepted recommendations by the government of Lebanon.

The submission will be approximately 2,815 words long, written in English and is to be completed by no later than 30th of June, 2020. Remuneration for the submission will be 1,000 EUR.

Applicants should submit a CV, a brief cover letter and a suggested draft outline to mrgmena@mrgmail.org by 15 of May 2020.
