National Consultant Gender Analysis of Customary Justice Systems
Advertised on behalf of : UN Women
Location : Dar es Salaam, TANZANIA
Application Deadline : 30-Nov-18 (Midnight New York, USA)
Time left : 10d 23h 28m
Additional Category : Gender Equality
Type of Contract : Individual Contract
Post Level : National Consultant
Languages Required : English
Duration of Initial Contract : 45 Days
Background
II. Organizational Context, background and statement of the problem.

UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
The commitments of the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania towards gender equality and women’s rights are evidenced in several strategic documents, such as the Tanzania Gender Development Policy of 2008 and the National Action Plan to End Violence against Women and Children of 2017/2018 - 2020/202. Gender equality is also mainstreamed in broader national development policies such as the Five-Year Development Plan 2016/2017 – 2020/20121: Nurturing Industrialization for Economic Transformation and Human Development. These, in line with other planning documents such as ‘Tanzania Vision 2025’, note the importance of increased equity, democracy and political and social tolerance to further human and economic development in the country (Tanzania Vision 2025).

These are aligned to Tanzania‘s International and Regional obligations and commitments including, but not limited to, non-discrimination, equality and rule of law. Tanzania’s commitments also include Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16 to ‘promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels’ (Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development) and SDG 5. Other such instruments include the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 (UDHR), International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights of 1966 (ICCPR), International Covenant of Social and Economic Rights of 1966 (ICESCR), the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women of 1981 (CEDAW), Africa Union Agenda 2063 aspiration for an Africa of good governance, democracy, and respect for human rights, justice and the rule of Law (African Union Agenda 2063) and The African Charter on Human and Peoples rights of 1981 and the additional Protocol on the Rights of Women of 2003.
Despite this, challenges still exist in some legal frameworks and their implementation in a manner that denies women certain rights, especially those related to property ownership, inheritance and marriage. The precedence of customary law in deciding cases in these areas continues to deprive women of rightful entitlements. An example of this problem is the existence of Customary Law Declaration Order which is discriminative towards women and provides a legal foundation for gender-based violence. Furthermore, the existence of customary practices such as the bride price, widow inheritance and cleansing, female genital mutilation and cutting (FGM/C) as well as strong patriarchal structures at community and family level continue to oppress women. The implementation of progressive laws is also sometimes challenged by the existence of customary structures and judicial organs that deal with the administration of justice.
Tanzania’s legal system consists of parallel frameworks. Statutory law exists alongside customary and Islamic law with courts mandated by law to apply customary and Islamic law in the administration of justice. The rules of customary laws currently applicable to the administration of justice in Mainland Tanzania originate from different ethnic groups. They were codified more than 50 years ago through the Local Customary Law Declaration Orders, 1963. The Judicature and Application of Laws Act, 1961 provides room for revision of customary rules to reflect developments taking place in particular societies but no such revisions have been done. The longevity of many provisions of customary law has placed women in a precarious condition as they are most often discriminated against directly or indirectly in the course of application of customary laws. There are numerous instances where courts have preferred the use of customary law in the administration of justice even though the use of such laws discriminates against women and contradicts statutory law.
In order to assist the Government of Tanzania in its endeavours to implement the recommendations of the CEDAW Committee on customary laws that discriminate against women, UN Women is extending technical support to assist in the formulation of recommendations for reform on the customary justice systems found on the Mainland. In order to provide well informed recommendations, a gender analysis of customary justice systems and justice sector policies in Mainland Tanzania is required. The study will be conducted in the regions of Mara, Dodoma and Mwara.
