[NOW CLOSED] Call for Consultants: “Train the Trainer” Facilitation

Media Defence’s Digital Rights Advocates training programme works to defend, promote and strengthen freedom of expression online in East, West and Southern Africa, by supporting legal communities with technical legal expertise to litigate digital rights cases.

One of the programme’s core activities is the delivery of litigation surgeries in East, West and Southern Africa. These litigation surgeries aim to increase the knowledge, skills and confidence of lawyers to litigate digital rights and online freedom of expression cases at national and regional courts. Media Defence has created a network of lawyers who have participated in these litigation surgeries.

These training alumni will soon be able to facilitate their own litigation surgeries in their countries of practice with financial support from Media Defence. Media Defence is therefore seeking a consultant to assist in the facilitation and development of the virtual training of trainers to be held in March 2021. The facilitator will work with the Digital Rights Advocates Project Team to develop a three-day programme which will work in a virtual format and will be as interactive as possible.

To apply, please submit your CV and a quote to hannah.stoate@mediadefence.org by 21 February 2021.
