Human Rights Adviser in Ecuador

In June 2007, OHCHR deployed a Human Rights Adviser to support the UN Country Team, particularly in implementing human rights-based activities to strengthen the judiciary.

Given that the National Constituent Assembly will approve a new Constitution defining the legal and political structure of the country, and Ecuador is, for the first time, formulating a long-term development strategy, OHCHR will focus on supporting the ongoing judicial reform aimed at ensuring independence and transparency of the judiciary, access to justice and the eradication of impunity. The advisor will work on integrating a rights-based approach into the Ecuadorian long-term development strategy, and provide advice to the UN Country Team on mainstreaming human rights into its CCA-UNDAF process. The Adviser will also help ensure that the new Constitution complies with international human rights standards.
