    Early Warning System Response Assessment Expert (Consultant)

    Job Summary
    The American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) will implement a program to improve Northern Nigerian communities’ capacity to identify and respond to threats to civilians, particularly to women and girls. To achieve this goal, ABA ROLI will work with a partner on the ground that is already operating an Early Warning System (EWS) to expand the system to two high-risk areas in Northern Nigeria and strengthen the response mechanisms present within the existing EWS in Northern Nigeria.

    The program activities will largely be implemented by the partner organization currently operating the EWS, with supervision and technical assistance provided by ABA ROLI. The EWS Expert’s role in this project will not require full-time work throughout the duration of the eight- month- long program but will involve 3-4 trips to secure locations in Nigeria to assist ABA ROLI’s local partner in the assessment and design of response plans. Preparatory work can be conducted remotely.


    •     Assist the local partner to conduct an assessment of the response mechanisms used by communities served by the EWS in Northern Nigeria;
    •     Pilot new and improved EWS response plans; and
    •     Remotely conduct preparatory work for the program.


    •     Experience with Early Warning Systems in Nigeria or elsewhere, particularly in EWS response mechanisms;
    •     Expertise in security sector reform, particular community policing and citizen-led security initiatives;
    •     Demonstrated capacity for research, and excellent analytic and writing abilities;
    •     Capacity to quickly build strong relationships with civil society partners;
    •     Must be willing to take 3-4 trips to the field; and
    •     Fluency in English required.
