Consultancy Notice – External Consultant for Indonesia Legislative Advocacy Toolkit Development

APHR is looking for a consultant to draft a short, pedagogical, and engaging toolkit, approximately 15 pages in length, explaining the different steps in the legislative procedures in Indonesia. The toolkit will be presented as a practical and accessible tool for APHR’s staff and members, members of parliament in Indonesia and their staff, and key civil society partners.

Building on this momentum, APHR is expanding its efforts with the development of the Indonesia Legislative Advocacy Toolkit this year.

The Toolkit is a key component of APHR’s broader initiatives to enhance the capacity of both civil society and parliamentarians in using their legislative powers to advance human rights and democratic principles.
