Ecuador: Strategic Litigation Volunteer
Closing date: 2017-05-30Application : Apply for the job
Organization: Asylum Access
Closing date: 30 May 2017
Asylum Access Ecuador (AAE), an Ecuadorian nonprofit organization, was founded in 2008 with the objective to make refugee rights a reality in the laws, policies, and practices in Ecuador. At AAE, we use our legal expertise to defend and promote refugee rights with a focus on human rights, and gender.
In Ecuador, Asylum Access has offices in Quito, Guayaquil, Ibarra, Tulc n, Santo Domingo, Lago Agrio, Esmeraldas, and San Lorenzo. AAE is part of the family of organizations, Asylum Access Latin America (AALA), works alongside Asylum Access Panam and Asylum Access M xico, and affiliates with Asylum Access as a global organization.
About the context:
Ecuador hosts the largest registered population of refugees in Latin America. According to the Ministry of International Relations, in February 2015, 60.095 refugees had been recognized since 2000. It is estimated that about 175,000 asylum seekers have applied for refugee status. Of that 175,000, about 23% are children and adolescents and 98.45% are from Colombia.
Despite the current peace process between the Colombian government and FARC, we continue to see a constant flow of people under international protection toward Ecuador, estimated at about 950 people per month. Additionally, especially in Quito and Guayaquil, we see an increase in the people in need of international protection from Syria, Iraq, Cameroon, Gambia, and Ghana, among other countries.
Volunteer with us!
AAE recruits volunteers with a passion for social justice and human rights to support the implementation of our strategic plans to reach our goals as an organization. We require a commitment of no less than 6 months to be able to work alongside our human rights defenders and lawyers in the local offices in Ecuador. After an intensive theoretic training and shadowing AAE legal advisers, lawyers, and coordinators, volunteers get the opportunity to work on one or more of our teams (Legal Services and Community Outreach, Strategic Litigation, Policy Advocacy, Communications, and/or Project Coordination) that work to defend refugee rights in different ways.
Our strategic litigation actions work to reduce the necessity of individual legal services by setting new legal precedents in favor of refugees: improving due process during refugee status determination (RSD) and access to rights for refugees and their families. This program establishes a process for identifying and litigating cases of public interest to set these new legal precedents and norms for the RSD process and refugees access to rights.
Responsibilities of a Strategic Litigation Volunteer
- Collaborate with the Strategic Litigation team to develop legal argumentation for cases in national and international courts and entities and follow up on those cases
- Assist in the identification and research of new cases for the Strategic Litigation program
- Maintain and update the physical and digital archives for cases with pertinent documentation
- Support the Strategic Litigation team in projects with other teams to train staff on the identification of emblematic cases for the program.
- You will be part of a multicultural and multidisciplinary team that works to defend refugee rights and the national and international level
- You will have the opportunity to learn from experts in refugee law from around the world
- You will lead your own research and projects
- After your experience in AAE, you will stay in contact as a member of the Asylum Access global network of human rights defenders, where you will have access to information on employment opportunities in the field, research and educational experiences, and updates on the refugee rights movement.
- Current enrollment in an accredited law school or graduated legal professional (JD or equivalent)
- Professional proficiency of Spanish at the minimum. Other languages are preferred, but not required.
- Availability to work 30 hours/week as minimum
- Positive attitude and readiness to work in a multicultural team
