    Consultant – Migration Policy Data

    CFA Number: IOMKCO/CFA/003/2021

    Position title: Consultant – Migration Policy Data

    Duty station: Nairobi, Kenya

    Duration of Assignment: 4 months

    Job family: Core Migration

    Organizational unit: Migration Governance

    Reporting directly to - Head of Programme and Policy Development

    BACKGROUND AND JUSTIFICATION

    The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is the leading intergovernmental organization in the field of migration. IOM works to help ensure the orderly and humane management of migration, to promote international cooperation on migration issues, to assist in the search for practical solutions to migration problems and to provide humanitarian assistance to migrants in need, including refugees and internally displaced people. In 2015, IOM developed the Migration Governance Framework (MiGOF), the only internationally agreed definition of well-managed migration[1]. The Migration Governance Indicators (MGI) were subsequently developed in order to operationalize the MiGOF.

    The MGI is a baseline assessment tool on national migration governance structures, consisting of a set of 90 indicators that help identify policy levers that can be used to strengthen migration governance. The overall objective of the MGI is to help countries strengthen their migration governance in their respective contexts based on their priorities. Since 2015, 68 countries have embarked on the MGI process at country level, and 10 countries at local level for a total of 16 assessments.

    In 2020 - 2021, IOM will pilot the first “MGI country level follow-up assessments” in 10 countries. The MGI follow-up assessments aim to show the progress that each country has made on the policy domains covered by the MGI since the first assessment as well as to help ensure that the information collected through the MGI is up to date. The main results of this exercise are summarized in an updated report highlighting the changes that have taken place since its first iteration. The updated report will also include a section assessing COVID-19 policies from a migration governance perspective.

    In 2017, Kenya undertook a comprehensive national review that resulted in the MGI profile[2]. The MGI follow-up assessment will evaluate progress since the MGI profile was published. For this process, IOM will hire a consultant to support the data collection in Kenya, including both a review of available secondary information and liaising with national institutions and counterparts, in the modalities defined by the IOM country office, to update the information related to an established set of indicators. The consultant will also draft and review the MGI report, integrating comments received from IOM and government counterparts.

    Job family: Core Migration

    Organizational unit: Labour Mobility & Human Development and Migrant Protection and Assistance Department

    Reporting directly to: Programme Manager - Labour Mobility & Human Development and Migrant Protection and Assistance Department

    BACKGROUND AND JUSTIFICATION

    Established in 1951, IOM is a Related Organization of the United Nations, and as the leading UN agency in the field of migration, works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.

    Kenya has been described as a country of origin, transit and destination for human trafficking by various reports including by the National Crime Research Center in 2015. This report points out the most prevalent forms of trafficking in Kenya as labour and sex trafficking especially along the coastal and major urban cities including Nairobi, and Kisumu. The clandestine and under reported nature of human trafficking, has led to a shortage of data regarding prevalence of the crime. The US Trafficking in Persons Report for 2020 ranked Kenya in the second tier as it does not meet the minimum standards for the elimination of Trafficking in Persons (TIP). Like many countries in the continent and globe, Kenya faces the great challenge of the growing number of unemployed youths, both from rural and urban areas who are increasingly seeking employment and opportunities abroad, and while pursuing their dreams, some fall into the trap of human trafficking/forced labour and exploitation.

This project “Fostering recruitment agencies’ ethical practices and accountability, as well as supporting the Government of Kenya (GoK) to pilot a recruitment oversight mechanism to prevent TIP will support the creation of sustainable business models for recruitment of migrant workers that are consistent with international ethical recruitment standards. The project will address the drivers of vulnerability that aggravates forced labour/human trafficking and exploitation by enhancing ethical recruitment services on the supply side, and also aims to pilot an oversight mechanism with the National Employment Authority (NEA) to monitor and report unscrupulous practices by recruitment agencies.
