The IRCT is looking for experts to join a working group on resources for the torture rehabilitation movement
For the last 10 years, the strategy of the torture rehabilitation movement has centred around encouraging States to deliver on their obligation of providing rehabilitation services to victims of torture, as stated in Article 14 of the UN Convention against Torture. Framing this work in the context of a human rights based approach has been powerful and allowed the movement to access funding dedicated to human rights either from development or justice sources.
However, financial support from States for international human rights work is decreasing globally.
In order to increase resources available for the rehabilitation of torture survivors, the IRCT General Assembly has mandated the Secretariat to establish a Working Group on Resources.
We are seeking experts in any of the following areas:
- Health care systems financing
- International NGOs partnerships within human rights/ development/health fundraising
- Particularly high-value fundraising (major gifts, corporates, trusts and foundations)
- Sustainability fund development
- Planning and implementation of revenue recovery activities
- Strategic financial forecasting
- Strategic communication
- Partnership building
WGR Membership is on a pro bono basis, i.e. participation is unpaid.
