Volunteer Opportunity: Human Rights Researcher
Volunteering at ReportOUT: Reliable, well-trained and passionate volunteers are vital to the work of ReportOUT and to our three-year Strategic Plan (2019-2022). Our volunteers give more than their time and energy, they are a vital part of our organisation and so we invest heavily in volunteer support, training and development. We offer a professional volunteering experience at ReportOUT and our roles and your responsibilities given, will reflect this.
About The Role:
The mission of the Human Rights Researchers is to conduct and collate research on global human rights abuses against sexual and gender minorities using a range of data collection techniques. This research is used to inform wider social, political and educational change.
Previous projects have seen the team completing country profiles on Pakistan and South Africa as well as completing profiles in partnership with an asylum seeker organisation on Brazil, Guinee and Namibia which have been used as supporting documents in court cases for people seeking asylum from these countries.
The focus of our future research projects in 2021-2022, include the following projects where we will need researchers for:
- our ‘Time to be Out’ profiles (literature reviews of countries which are used to support asylum seeker court cases);
- completing global book chapters (literature reviews of book chapters on each country across the globe for our upcoming book).
Applications close 9th April 2021.
