Consultancy Notice: Researcher – 2023 Parliamentarians At Risk Annual Briefer


Globally, parliamentarians’ right to freedom of expression is increasingly being restricted and MPs are facing greater risk of reprisals simply for exercising their mandate or freely expressing themselves. Asia follows the same trend: according to the Inter-Parliamentary Union, it is the fourth most dangerous region for MPs. These attacks on MPs have significant consequences; for the individuals themselves who face threats to their right to liberty and physical integrity as well as to society as a whole.

Parliamentarians at Risk is a part of APHR’s efforts to document attacks on lawmakers in the Southeast Asian region and to advocate for lawmakers to exercise their mandates free from threats or interference.

APHR is therefore hiring an external consultant to draft the 2023 annual briefer on Parliamentarians at risk. Updates to specific cases will be required and to that extent some desk-based research and some interviews with some of the MPs will have to be conducted by the consultant.
