The Raoul Wallenberg Institute has been carrying out human rights capacity development activities in cooperation with correctional services internationally since the mid-1990s, and has developed a distinct set of methodologies to support measureable improvements in compliance with international standards for human rights in corrections.
In addition to internal expertise in the area of human rights and corrections, the Institute draws on external technical expertise as required for specific activities in this area and maintains a roster of experienced corrections experts for this purpose. The roster was established following a world-wide call for applications from experts and rigorous assessment of applicants to be selected for inclusion as experts in the roster.
Inclusion in the roster does not guarantee the offer of consultancy work and experts are considered for specific assignments depending on needs the Institute has and terms of reference for individual assignments, which are awarded, when necessary, following a competitive procedure.
Currently, the roster is not open for general applications, and applications from new experts are accepted by invitation only. For more information about the Institute’s corrections expert roster, please contact:
