Project: Advocacy, Protection and Legal Assistance to Internally Displaced and Conflict-Affected Populations

Component: Support to territorial communities along the contact line in reorganizing social and administrative services in line with the decentralization

Duration: April 15, 2021 – December 31, 2021

INTRODUCTIONINTRODUCTION

The Right to Protection, CF (R2P) is a charitable fund that strives for Ukraine to become a country where refugees, stateless, non-citizens and displaced persons enjoy dignity and protection.

Since the beginning of the conflict in the East of Ukraine R2P has been monitoring the protection situation of IDPs, providing legal assistance and strengthening humanitarian response in Donetsk, Luhansk, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Zaporizhzhya regions.

PROJECT OVERVIEWPROJECT OVERVIEW

In the mid 2020 Ukraine has finalized the process of administrative restructuring now encompassing 1469 territorial communities, 119 raions within 24 oblasts. Donetsk oblast (GCA, NGCA) encloses 46 territorial communities, 8 raions. Luhansk oblast (GCA, NGCA) has 28 territorial communities, 4 raions.

In conflict-affected areas along the ‘line of contact’ the decentralization has passed with significant dissimilarity. The technical capacity of territorial communities in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts is less sufficient for sustained performance, economic and social development.

The project is a part of the R2P’s Advocacy, Protection and Legal Assistance to Internally Displaced and Conflict-Affected Populations implemented in Donetsk, Luhansk, Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk, and Zaporizhia Oblasts with financial assistance from UNHCR.

The objective of this particular component is to ensure that selected Amalgamated Territorial Communities (ATCs)/Civil Military Administrations (CMAs) along the Contact Line take the necessary steps to ensure that essential administrative and social services can become functional and accessible for IDPs and residents from Non_Governmental Controlled Territories as soon as possible. This will facilitate responsible disengagement of humanitarian actors from the direct provision of these services.

This project builds on R2P’s efforts to build bridges across the line of contact through a series of dialogues that will develop a shared vision of peaceful coexistence and common identity as a means of achieving long-term reconciliation.

The goal of the project is to increase understanding of different perspectives of the conflict among community members across the line of contact through facilitated dialogues that strengthen trust and relationships and ultimately reduce tensions.

In the framework of the project, R2P will use its connections within other organizations and individual experts to organize and/or attend coordination-working group meetings in order to discuss joint advocacy strategy in peacebuilding and other challenges to the process of dialogue (e.g. the security). R2P’s team will help take the dialogue group’s informal recommendations and turn them into specific recommendations to be conveyed to Track 1 and Track 2 dialogues.

Note: this is a part-time position (20 hours a week).
