Background and objectives
The International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG) is looking for online volunteers to provide translation of eight legal texts related to child-sensitive social protection of Maldives' legal system. The Social Protection Act needs to be translated integrally - 8 pages in total. For the remaining seven sets of legislation an integral translation is not required: the selected online volunteers, under the supervision and coordination of the Research Team, will analyse the legislation against predetermined criteria and translate the relevant applicable sections of the legal texts. The overall expected number of pages to be translated for each legal text is 3, resulting in a total of 21 pages for the seven texts. Online Volunteers will receive a certificate of appreciation for their contributions and be acknowledged in the final publication of documents. Online Volunteers will work remotely at a time and location of their convenience, subject to the deadlines set.
Translation and interpretation
The research is focused on non-contributory child-sensitive social protection in South Asia and consists of a mapping of programmes, legislation and financial arrangements within the Region. The International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG) is a joint project of the United Nations Development Programme and the Brazilian Government to facilitate South-South Cooperation on key development issues. The IPC-IG’s mandate is to promote the production and dissemination of studies and policy recommendations, the exchange of best practices in development initiatives and the expansion of South-South cooperation. Objectives: to support the provision of an outlook of the existing child-sensitive social protection legal-regulatory frameworks in South Asia; to support the assessment of the compliance of child-sensitive social protection legal frameworks with a human rights-based approach in the Region.
