In the context of our 2016 – 2020 strategic plan, we are looking for our Headquarter in Lausanne for a

Deputy Programme Manager, Access to Justice Programme

Terre des hommes cemented its role as a global leader in promoting a restorative approach to juvenile justice. In 2017 we worked for 80,000 children by preventing violence and following up on children in contact with the law to guarantee their access to justice and a smooth reintegration into society. We worked with justice actors from the formal state system and the informal justice system to promote children’s rights.

Context :

By 2020, Terre des hommes (Tdh) aims to contribute significantly and sustainably to improving access to justice for children and youth in contact with the law globally. Terre des hommes is a leading worldwide reference on restorative juvenile justice, to contribute to developing and improving justice systems by enhancing the restorative approach and in particular by promoting alternatives to trials, detention and specialized custodial care for children, better prevention and reintegration, and synergies in contexts of legal pluralism. Tdh’s strategic plan creates a comprehensive framework for action that combines axes on operations, advocacy, research and quality and accountability, with a view to creating lasting and meaningful change in the lives of children in contact with the law.

The Access to Justice (A2J) Programme currently operates at global, regional and national levels, with particular emphasis on four key geographical regions: Eastern Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and North Africa, and West Africa.

Concretely, this entails supporting the roll-out of programmatic steering and quality and accountability processes, including the programmatic indicators and theory of change, as well as contributing to the ongoing development of the programme in its fundraising activities.
