Call for Expression of Interest (EoI)

Call for Expression of Interest (EoI)

Organization: Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC)

Date of announcement: 20th June 2018

Type of Announcement: Request for Expression of Interest (EoI)

Station: Abuja


Subject: Request for Expression of Interest (EoI) to engage consultants to conduct a Review of Laws and Policies in Adamawa and Cross River States / Analysis of Humanitarian Intervention in Nigeria.



Nigeria remains a country originating and receiving refugees in addition to playing host to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). The major components of current humanitarian needs have been fuelled by the activities of insurgent groups operating in various parts of the country in addition to the receiving of refugees from across the international borders just as environmentally induced needs remain evident.


More significantly, from 2012 the insurgent group Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād otherwise known as Boko Haram carried on a grave campaign of violence and destruction of lives and property leading to the designation of the group as the world’s deadliest terror group as at 2015[1]. The group single handedly contributed to the displacement of approximately 3 million people as at 2014[2]; in addition, to leaving an estimated 14 million people being in need of one form or another of humanitarian assistance or protection.


Resultantly, all relevant actors both at the national and global stage have demonstrated significant commitment to providing both protection and assistance to these Persons of Concern (PoC) covering the thematic focus of forced migration[3]. The situation however still remains dire, requiring strengthened response to humanitarian intervention in-country including the need for evaluating the level and impact of interventions so far in the growing light of reports that suggests an increase in lack of integrity and checking infractions in the provision of humanitarian aid.
