Консультант/-ка для проведення якісного дослідження та аналізу (DCAF)

Qualitative Research & Analysis Consultant


In recent years, many Ukrainian government entities have adopted policy frameworks and guidance to promote gender equality, including to fulfill Ukraine’s National Action Plan (NAP) commitments under UNSCR 1325 and the WPS Agenda. A gender impact assessment of the security and defence institutions in 2017, and subsequent institutional gender self-assessments of the National Police of Ukraine and the State Emergency Services in 2021 supported by UN Women Ukraine reflect a growing commitment across the security and defence sector to identify the extent to which implementation of such policies has been achieved, the remaining policy gaps, and the challenges to cultivating institutional cultures that promote gender equality and integrate a gender perspective, and to ensuring state authorities’ accountability for effective implementation, monitoring and reporting on the NAP 1325 commitments. To achieve this across the sector, there is a need to more systematically identify these barriers, formulate responses to overcome them, and to increase the expertise of existing internal gender staff.

In support of the UN Women’s ongoing work to support Ukraine’s fulfillment of its NAP objectives, and a specific UN Women  project  “Women Transforming Peace and Security in Ukraine”, DCAF will conduct several Institutional Gender Assessments (IGAs) of security sector institutions.  The assessment will  generate a comprehensive evidence base for recommendations to inform institutional Gender Action Plans to promote enhanced compliance with Ukraine’s NAP.

The IGA will use both qualitative and quantitative research and data collection methods, including: 

  1. a) desk review: scope determined by consensus, collection, analysis and drafting conducted primarily by national partners/consultants; 
  2. b) qualitative research: interviews by national partners/consultants with key decision-makers based on co-developed interview questions
  3. c) quantitative research: co-designed survey spanning the six themes (discussed below) to be administered across all ranks and main structures of each institution by a quantitative data analyst consultant, who conducts preliminary data analysis to inform broader analysis and report writing by the national partners/consultants.

The data gathered and analysed should cover six thematic areas identified in the DCAF Gender Self-Assessment Guide (available in English and in Ukrainian): performance effectiveness; laws, policies and planning; community relations; accountability and oversight; personnel; institutional culture. 

Scope of consultancy 

The assessment is planned to be conducted from the end of 2021 until 30 June 2022 and to involve three-way partnerships: DCAF (providing overall guidance, technical expertise and holding final responsibility); national consultants (liaising with institutions, implementation, data collection and analysis, report drafting and revision); and the institutions themselves (in the form of a working group to coordinate implementation, ensure necessary approvals are obtained and executed, provide institutional validation of the assessment and input into the subsequent gender action plans). 

DCAF seeks to form a small team of consultants to, in partnership with the national institutions, guide and implement the IGA process and subsequently draft the IGA reports. The team will comprise: 

  1. consultants with individual responsibility for managing the IGA process of two or three national institutions, including liaising, procurement of documents, conducting interviews, qualitative data collection and analysis, and report drafting, including of quantitative analysis findings
  2. a quantitative analyst, responsible for design, delivery, collection and analysis of quantitative data (through surveys) across all institutions

Depending on the profiles and experience of interested and qualified candidates, one member of the team may also have oversight and/or coordination responsibilities to ensure coherence across the different institutions and reports.
