We Do     Contact person   For any technical problems encountered during the on-line application, please contact the Global Service Desk at globalsd@unhcr.org well before the deadline to allow sufficient time for problems to be resolved.For any other type of support, please contact the HR Unit on armyehr@unhcr.org========================================================================================================See below for this postion's Operational Context========================================================================================================       Operational ContextArmenia ratified the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol (hereinafter jointly referred to as the 1951 Convention) in 1993. The current Law on Refugees and Asylum of the Republic of Armenia was adopted in 2008 and extensively amended in 2015 bringing the legal framework further in line with international standards.UNHCR supports the authorities of Armenia with development of fair and efficient asylum procedures. Access to legal assistance at all stages of the asylum procedures is an important element in establishing fair and transparent refugee status determination procedures and strengthening the quality of decision-making. It can assist in the identification of international protection needs of applicants by helping them put forward all the information relevant to their refugee claims, as well as discourage the submission of false claims by dispelling misguided or exploitative information, and thus contributes to the efficiency and expediency of the process.In the past few years, a number of asylum-seekers have expressed concern regarding their access to legal aid and the possibilities for an effective remedy in Armenia. The Law on Refugees and Asylum and the Law on the Profession of Advocates provide for free legal assistance for asylum-seekers through the Office of the Public Defender (PDO) under the Chamber of Advocates of Armenia. However, initial assessments have identified a number legal, capacity and operational constraints reportedly hindering the effective exercise of this right. At the stage of first instance asylum procedures, legal aid is limited to provision of information and counselling only while legal assistance and representation are to be available at the stage of appealing negative asylum decisions. In practice, legal representation at the first instance procedures is available in a limited number of cases and only when it is provided by the UNHCR partner NGO. Moreover, due to serious systemic constraints, such as the heavy workload and limited experience in asylum cases among PDO staff, also the lack of interpretation services, serious challenges have been reported as regards the access to and quality of legal aid. The 2019 Programme of the Government of Armenia and the 2021 Concept on State Management of Migration express a commitment to further strengthen the international protection system and improve the refugee protection legislation. Under the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement Between the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community and their Member States, of the one part, and the Republic of Armenia, of the other part, the parties have agreed to cooperate in the area of the development and implementation of national legislation and practices as regards international protection, with a view to satisfying the provisions of the 1951 Convention and other relevant international instruments, such as the European Convention on Human Rights, and to ensuring respect for the principle of non-refoulement.Given UNHCR¿s mandate and role in Armenia, global experience as well as its fruitful and longstanding relationship with the authorities of Armenia, it is planning to undertake a study to assess whether current law and practice regarding the provision of legal aid in Armenia are in line with regional and international standards. This study therefore represents a first review and analysis of the legal framework and practice related to the provision of legal aid to asylum-seekers in Armenia. As a result of the study, a report will be produced.     Duration of Appointment   Duration and dates of the assignment: 3 months, 100% (fulltime), Working Hours: Not ApplicableLocation:  Working from home.Assignment and/or Mission travel are not applicable             ________________________________________________________________________   This is how cinfo can support you in the application process for this specific position:  - Before you apply for this position: Improve your application documents by registering for a [Job Application Support](http://www.cinfo.ch/en/job-application-support).  - When invited to the interview: Prepare for the interview by registering for a [Job Application Support](http://www.cinfo.ch/en/job-application-support).
