GLJ-ILRF is seeking a consultant who will be responsible for conducting a diagnostic assessment on the seafood industry in South Korea and Indonesia. This diagnostic assessment will consist of consultations and a written report that will inform and guide the Seafood Working Group’s expansion to one of the two countries. To support this work, GLJ-ILRF has undertaken consultations with relevant organizations in the region and conducted preliminary research into the seafood industry in both countries. The diagnostic assessment will build on this preliminary work by (1) providing more comprehensive analysis of the seafood industry and related labor rights context and (2) outlining a policy advocacy and/or corporate campaign strategy with specific partner organization for each country.
The consultancy is approximately 30 days total of work (15 days per country) beginning as soon as possible. Given the expertise in Indonesia and South Korea required for this posting, an application may be from one person or a consultant team of two people.
Remote work as needed due to Covid-19; preference for candidates currently based in South Korea or Indonesia.
Applications considered on a rolling basis until consultant(s) are identified.
Led by GLJ-ILRF, the Seafood Working Group (SWG) is a global coalition of human rights, labor rights, and environmental organizations working to end forced labor in the global seafood industry by pushing for legal and policy reform and greater corporate accountability. Based on the interests of SWG members, the coalition is transitioning into a regional working group during 2020-2022 with strategies to influence key stakeholders in Thailand, Taiwan and at least one other country in the region. The formation of a regional SWG and implementation of national and transnational advocacy and campaigning across Southeast and East Asia will ensure that migrant seafood workers’ rights are better protected in both the region and global supply chains.
