CONSULTANCY:
Media Advisor to Develop Media Kit for the Kampala Convention

PERIOD:
2 Months – Starting as soon as possible but no later than 15 August 2010

LOCATION:
This consultancy can be carried out from any location provided it offers 
good internet access

Background and scope:
The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) of the Norwegian 
Refugee Council (NRC) is the leading global monitor and an important 
advocate for the rights of internally displaced people (IDPs).

IDMC’s online database at www.internal-displacement.org provides 
comprehensive information and analysis on the situation of IDPs 
displaced by armed conflicts and violence in some 50 countries, with 
regard to their rights under international law, as restated in the 
Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement. The database was set up in 
1998, following a request of the UN Inter-Agency Standing Committee.

Kampala Convention:
In October 2009, the African Union adopted the Convention for the 
Protection and Assistance of Internally Displaced Persons in Africa, 
also known as the Kampala Convention. The Convention is the first 
regional instrument in the world to impose legal obligations on states 
in relation to the protection and assistance of IDPs, and its adoption 
has been widely recognised as an historic achievement.

The Convention addresses different causes of internal displacement, 
including displacement caused by armed conflict, human rights 
violations, natural disasters and displacement caused by “projects 
carried out by public or private actors”. The Convention also addresses 
the different phases of displacement: it places obligations on states to 
protect people from arbitrary displacement, to provide protection and 
assistance to IDPs during displacement, and to seek durable solutions 
for IDPs.

As part of IDMC’s larger project on the Kampala Convention, IDMC is 
developing a media strategy with the overall objective of raising 
awareness with the general public (including IDPs) in AU member states 
about the Kampala Convention.

The creation of an easy access media/press kit will be one of the first 
steps to implement the media strategy.

Purpose of the consultancy:
The purpose for this consultancy is to develop and publish online, and 
promote a media package for partner organisations, consisting of 
information about internal displacement in general, the Kampala 
Convention, and country-specific information for each of the countries 
where our partner organisations support media projects.

Outputs:
• Online media package with information on different aspects of the 
Kampala Convention.
• Suggestions for journalists on how to develop stories for written 
media, radio or TV on internal displacement and the Kampala Convention.
• Outreach to partner organisations to introduce them to the media package.
• Framework for ensuring that the media package remains up to date, with 
a timeline for appropriate steps to be taken.

Resources and management:
The consultant will report to the Head of IDMC and will liaise closely 
with the NRC media advisor.
