NATIONAL FOCAL POINT – THAILAND (part-time consultant)

Background

APHR is a regional network of current and former parliamentarians who use their unique positions to advance human rights and democracy in Southeast Asia. We seek to help create a region where people can express themselves without fear, live free from all forms of discrimination and violence, and where development takes place with human rights at the forefront. 

Our members use their mandate to advocate for human rights inside and outside of parliaments, regionally and globally. They work closely with civil society, conduct fact-finding missions, and publish recommendations and opinions on the most important issues affecting the region. 

APHR was born out of the recognition that human rights issues in Southeast Asia are interconnected, and from the desire of progressive legislators to work together across borders to promote and protect human rights (www.aseanmp.org).

This is an opportunity for a professional or recent graduate to get involved in one of the region’s most dynamic organizations. The ideal candidate will already be working in the field of human rights, politics, or a related area and can commit to an additional 20 hours a month (4 to 5 hours a week) for APHR work.

As the National Focal Point, you will work remotely and remain in direct contact with the APHR Secretariat.
