VN 02/02/012

Position Title Qualitative Researcher (Consultant) Number of Positions multiple Duration of Assignment Six months Duty Station Karamoja, Uganda Starting Date As soon as possible.

Background Information – Coordinated Response to Human Trafficking in Uganda

The project entitled, "Coordinated Response to Human Trafficking in Uganda" ("CRTU") aims to bring about a coordinated response to human trafficking in Uganda with a predominant focus on so-called "Karamojong Street Children". Extant knowledge of push factors primarily from the Bakora region of Karamoja include relative disarmament of the region compared to surrounding neighbours, local-level conflict and insecurity, in particular cattle raiding, as well as underlying poverty and food insecurity.

The project outlines a humane and orderly reception and case management approach based in Kampala working with an existing civil society actor along with on-the-job training and direct set-up assistance for the Ministry of Internal Affairs' "Office for the Prevention of Trafficking in Persons". Based on IOM's regional and worldwide expertise in counter-trafficking and case management, individual cases will handled directly from reception, through to return home, and socio-economic reintegration assistance. The data gathered throughout these processes will be used in order to incrementally build a detailed profile of human trafficking in Uganda with a view to more targeted programming and referral to investigative authorities for surveillance, detection, and prosecution.

In the second year of the programme an emphasis on communities of return and evidence-based approaches to addressing the drivers and causes of human trafficking will be embarked upon. Through iterative assessment in the field, reinforced by case management of client information, the CRTU will design and implement Uganda's first ever Victims of Trafficking Database. This database will be the focal point for IOM's cooperation with MoIA's Office for the Prevention of Trafficking in Persons both in Kampala and with other stakeholders in the field through the establishment of working joint monitoring hubs in Karamoja.

General Functions:

Under the direct supervision of the Project Officer and in close coordination with the Lead Researcher and Counter-trafficking Project Officer, and under the overall guidance of the Chief of Mission, the Qualitative Researcher will contribute to developing a clear understanding of factors contributing to human trafficking in source communities and transit centers by using qualitative data collection and analysis techniques. Such a function involves the training of study staff to conduct qualitative research, the conducting of interviews by the qualitative researcher, transcribing, coding, and analysis/reporting of qualitative data as described below.

The candidate will undertake the following tasks:

* Contribute to the design of qualitative studies including semi-structured interviews, key informant interviews, and focus groups in communities to provide a greater context for understanding push and pull factors leading to the outmigration of Karamojong children to urban centers.
* Conduct semi-structured interviews and key informant interviews as part of the data collection process
* Design a qualitative component in a household sample survey in order to assess push factors contributing to the outmigration of Karamojong children to urban centers.
* Analysis of qualitative data collected by caseworkers by means of consultation with clients.
* Using the methodologies above, conduct an analysis of social and community networks related to the transportation, recruitment, and harboring of Karamojong children for the purposes of exploitation in order to facilitate the proactive deterrence programs undertaken by the IOM CRTU.
* Assist with the identification of individuals, based on the social network analysis, who may be involved in the trafficking of children to further elucidate incentives for trafficking and trafficking routes and processes.
* Conduct a secondary analysis of victim-centered interview data from screening and consultations in order to develop a comprehensive understanding of clients' experiences of trafficking and reintegration.

Expected outputs:

* A preliminary qualitative report based on key informant interviews and focus groups on push and pull factors for outmigration to urban centers and a description of transit routes, deliverable by May 2012.
* A further substantive report on the role of community and social networks as well as household decision making responsible for outmigration to urban centers from Karamoja deliverable by mid-June 2012.
* An analysis of factors, by means of case-based data, contributing to the successful or unsuccessful reintegration of children returned to Karamoja and the contribution of program inputs deliverable by the contract's end.
* Ongoing training of the Data Analysis Unit on designing, conducting, coding, and analyzing qualitative data in the context of human trafficking.

Qualifications/Requirements:

* University degree in the social sciences, Human Rights, Law, International Development, Anthropology, Sociology and/or a relevant field
* Previous experience in qualitative data collection, management, and analysis
* Experience working in a team environment
* Proficiency with MSWord and MSPowerPoint
* Proven report writing experience using quantitative data analyses to develop comprehensive contextual analyses; and
* Ability to travel and work in challenging environments.
* Written and spoken fluency in English and Ngakarimojong essential.
