Research Consultants

International Center for Not-for-Profit Law

Washington, D.C.

 

The International Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ICNL) seeks Research Consultants to carry out research and produce reports on two topics outlined below. 

ICNL has worked in over 100 countries to strengthen the legal framework for civil society, civic participation, and philanthropy. Our partners include civil society organizations (CSOs), governments, law schools, and international bodies. Please see www.icnl.org for additional information.

Projects

1) Closing Academic SpaceA global resurgence of authoritarianism has been accompanied by a growth in restrictions on university space and academic freedom.  Examples include President Erdogan’s replacement of mass numbers of university faculty and administrators in Turkey and Hungary’s attempts to close the Central European University.  The legal and regulatory strategies used by governments to limit university space are still relatively poorly understood, but may include:

·         Politically motivated removal of faculty or staff

·         Limiting travel

·         Restricting protests on campus

·         Limiting the ability of legal clinics to work on politically sensitive topics

·         Attacking the legal statuses of centers at universities that work on politically sensitive issues

·         Attacking the legal statuses of universities themselves

 

ICNL seeks a Research Consultant to analyze these and similar strategies.  The consultant will 1) research the legal and regulatory strategies used by governments to restrain universities, as well as the reasons for these restraints, and 2) produce a report explaining the research findings, identifying other potential legal vulnerabilities of universities arising from closing civic space, and providing recommendations on strategies for better protecting universities. 

 

2) Counter-terrorism, National Security, and Emergency Laws.  Governments have become increasingly sophisticated in embedding restrictions on civil society in a broad range of complex laws related to national security, including national security laws, counter-terrorism laws, and emergency laws and declarations.  To advocate against these types of restrictions effectively, activists must deepen their knowledge of these more advanced civil society law issues, so that they can educate government officials and legislators on why the restrictions are inappropriate and provide comparative examples of better means of regulation. 

 

To date, there has been limited study of the ways in which these counter-terrorism, national security, and emergency laws affect CSO operations.  ICNL seeks a consultant to (1) conduct a study analyzing prominent examples of such laws and create a typology of the restrictions they contain, (2) analyze their impact on CSOs, and (3) produce a report explaining the research findings and recommending legal arguments and advocacy strategies for addressing restrictions on civil society contained in these types of laws.  Consultants should identify in their proposals focus countries or regions for their studies.

Application Instructions

To apply for a consultancy, applicants must submit the following items:

      Application coversheet;

      Proposal; and

      Resume, Curriculum Vitae (CV), or other statement of work history and education.

Applications should be sent to Catherine Shea, Vice President – Programs at ICNL at cshea@icnl.org. Reference “Research Consultancy” in the subject line.  Applications will be considered on a rolling basis through February 28, 2018. Applications must be submitted in English.

 

Proposal

In three pages or less, please address the following topics:

·         Your past or present experience relevant to closing academic space or counter-terrorism, national security or emergency laws.

·         Your past or present experience relevant to the legal environment for civil society.

      Your past or present experience conducting legal research and writing reports.

      Identification of which research project you wish to work on.

      A brief description of your plan for completing the research, including identification of issues you propose to research, methodology for conducting the research, countries or regions that will be the focus of the study, and a description of the report you plan to produce.

      A brief budget for your work, which should include:

      Day rate/s for all personnel assigned to the project.

      Number of days that you believe will be necessary to complete the research and report.

Criteria for Selection

 

Applications will be evaluated based on the following factors:

      Compliance with application procedures;

      Experience with the subject matter of the research project and with the legal environment for civil society;

      Experience researching and writing similar reports;

      Quality of the proposal;

      Competitiveness of day rate and value.

Issuance of this solicitation does not constitute an award commitment on the part of ICNL nor does it commit ICNL to pay for cost incurred in the preparation and submission of an application.
