Consultancy
Consultancy at American Bar Association (ABA) February, 2023
1.0. Background

The
American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) is
implementing a project entitled, “Promoting Freedom of Expression, Rule
of Law and Access to Justice in East Africa, with a focus on Tanzania
and Uganda.” The project was developed as a response to an emerging
trend of States curtailing legitimate work of human rights defenders,
limiting freedom of expression, and narrowing the space for civil
society and the media. This has been under the guise of safeguarding
state sovereignty and security, where governments are placing
unnecessary and debilitating restrictions on fundamental human rights;
right to civic engagement, media freedom and civil society space
particularly freedoms of assembly, association, and expression.

In
Uganda, the media is facing challenges resulting in self-censorship,
lack of coordination and common agenda. This is largely attributed to
the impunity with which state agencies violate media rights due to the
prevailing political environment. This has further been compounded by
lack of support from the regulatory body and increasing restrictive
legal and policy environment which has extended to freedom of expression
online. Moreover, CSOs face continued repression on account of
restrictive legislation and executive policies that authorities use to
silence critical voices, creating a chilling effect.

This has
been compounded by the passing of restrictive laws and policies on
Freedom of Expression and general civic space. Therefore the increasing
closing of civic space and the implications of this pattern of actions
calls for innovative strategies and measures to address the situation.
Advocacy for greater protection of freedom of expression, and for
much-needed legal and policy reforms is one of the key objectives of the
project.

Policy briefs are an important tool for advocacy. They
provide an intimate understanding of a particular law/policy through
research and analysis which highlights concerns for policy makers.
Informed by this context, ABA ROLI seeks to identify consultants to
support advocacy efforts to enhance legal and policy reform on freedom
of expression and civic space by developing policy brief(s) on emerging
issues related to Freedom of Expression and Civic Space.
