Established in 1951, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) is the leading intergovernmental
organization in the field of migration with 166 member states, a further eight
states holding observer status and offices in over 150 countries. IOM’s over 9,000 staff
members worldwide are dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the
benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.
Egypt became an IOM Member State in 1991 and has since been represented at the annual Council,
actively contributing to the Organization’s global policies and programmes, as well as approving its
activities, accounts and expenditures. IOM Mission to Egypt ensures that all activities are in line with
national government priorities to assist the Government of Egypt in achieving national and
international development goals. IOM Egypt’s work on issues related to migrant smuggling and human
trafficking fall under the umbrella of the Migrant Assistance Division. These interventions are
undertaken in close coordination with national counterparts, the UN country team and relevant
national stakeholders.
In 2010, Egypt passed the anti‐trafficking Law 64/2010 and, following the adoption of the Law, IOM
worked closely with the relevant government institutions on capacity building activities. In October
2016, the Government of Egypt issued the five‐year National Strategy on Preventing and Combating
Human Trafficking. While the Law is the key legal instrument for combatting trafficking of persons, the
National Strategy outlines the general framework for tackling human trafficking by employing the 3P
Paradigm (Prevention, Prosecution and Protection). In the same month, October 2016, the Parliament
passed the anti‐smuggling law 82/2016, which led to the formation of the National Coordinating
Committee on Combating and Preventing Illegal Migration and Trafficking in Persons (NCCPIM&TIP)
which is also responsible for the implementation of the 2016‐2026 National Strategy on Combating
Illegal Migration and its two‐year action plan.
In this context, IOM is seeking to hire a curriculum developer to lead the development of two
specialized training curriculums in order to enhance judges and prosecutors’ capacity to address
trafficking in persons and migrant smuggling cases with an emphasis on decriminalizing and protecting
the victims and migrants. Upon consent of NCCPIM&TIP, Ministry of Justice and the Office of
Prosecutor General the curriculums will be established in partnership with the National Centre for
Judicial Studies (NCJS) and facilitated by an equal number of senior judges and prosecutors. The
consultant is expected develop the training curriculums by chairing joint task force formed of
representatives of the relevant national institutions, subject matter experts, senior judges and
prosecutors. The activity will be implemented within the framework of two IOM projects Strengthening
Egyptian Governmental Efforts to Combat Trafficking in Persons (STRENGTH) and Preventing and
Responding to Irregular Migration in Egypt (PRIME) which are funded by the Netherlands and the
United Kingdom.
