« Together against the death penalty in Central Africa and Southeast Asia”




This ROEI is part of a project “Together against the death penalty in Central Africa and Southeast Asia” whose main objective is to help make progress toward the abolition of the death penalty, and make it a priority of public policy in 4 key countries in 2 regions (Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Malaysia, and Indonesia) by reducing its scope and working to implement official moratoriums with abolition as the ultimate goal.


This action is implemented by a consortium of 6 partner organisations. ECPM, the lead organisation in partnership with local partners. In Southeast Asia the partners are: ADPAN in Malaysia, KontraS in Indonesia and CPJP, in Australia. KontraS and CPJP are both members of ADPAN. ADPAN (Anti-Death Penalty Asia Network) is a regional network based in Kuala Lumpur, founded in 2006 and has 90 member organizations and individuals in the Asia-Pacific region.


Within the framework of this project, ADPAN and ECPM are seeking a consultant who will coordinate ADPAN activities in Malaysia. The consultant will be based in Kuala Lumpur.


Selected profiles will primarily show their ability to work with multiple stakeholders, with different partners located in several countries and understand donors guidelines. They will also show their understanding of the sensitivity of the main issue at hand, i.e the abolition of the death penalty in a society that still largely uses it.


Candidates who are interested shall produce all information showing their skills and experience to fulfil the requested tasks. In this respect, they will justify that they possess experience in recent and similar services.


This experience will be analysed according to:

  • Demonstrated experience in project coordination in a non-profit and/or Human Rights related area

  • Experience in administrative and financial management for project receiving international funding (such as EU or French Development Agency (AFD)) would be desirable.

  • Knowledge of digital platforms to engage in communications with members including updating ADPAN membership database; maintaining and developing ADPAN’s website and associated platforms
