Defence for Children International: the International Movement:
Defence for Children International is a leading child rights focused and membership based grassroots movement placing all members on equal footing. Created during the International Year of the Child (1979), DCI coordinated the NGO’s input for the drafting of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) - the most widely ratified human rights treaty in history.
As a worldwide Movement, our aim is to ensure an ongoing, practical, systematic and concerted action towards the effective implementation of the human rights codified in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) by means of effective, multi-level coordination and active membership within key networks and fora. DCI counts with 37 grass-roots organisations (National Sections and Associated Members) in five different continents, involving over 300 trained and specialized local staff and volunteers, who contribute daily to defend and protect the human rights of children. In all that we do, we aspire to orient our work so that it is transparent, accountable, socially-transformative and sustainable.
DCI-World Service Foundation: a strategic institutional tool in Brussels:
The DCI World Service Foundation (DCI-WS) was established by the DCI International Movement in 2016 to strengthen its work and guide the implementation of the Movement’s Strategic Framework by supporting the development of projects, mainly by providing technical expertise and conceptual advice to DCI’s National Sections and Regional Desks.
DCI-WS is responsible for ensuring a systematic approach in the Movement’s relations with donors, public and private partners, who would like to actively contribute to the growing impact of DCI’s activities around the globe.
The DCI-WS is strategically located in Brussels, Belgium, to connect the Movement with EU and international partners and access related project opportunities within that fora. The position is based in DCI-Belgium, the National Section which supports with the administrative management of the Foundation.
The project Child-friendly Justice in action! aims to evaluate the practices of professionals working in administrative services for the processing of stay and asylum applications in contact with children. The project aims to highlight gaps and good practices in this area, in order to improve practices towards children, and to align them with international standards: the International Convention on the Rights of the Child and more particularly the Council of Europe Guidelines on child-friendly justice (see www.cfjnetwork.eu).
DCI is committed to equality of opportunity for all staff, and applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of sex, age, disability, gender identity, or ethnicity.
The Coordinator reports to the International Secretariat of DCI (Geneva) and on a daily basis and management issues to DCI-Belgium hosting the position.
