Thailand: JRS hiring for IDC and legal positions
05 October 2011

The purpose of JRS’ program in the Immigration Detention Center is to provide practical assistance to detainees in the main detention center in Bangkok and a satellite center in a nearby province. It is unique in the type of services we provide and the access JRS has to assist the detainees. The Project Director is responsible for the medical clinic and the release program which assists detainees to return voluntarily to their home country. 

Legal officers working for JRS must advocate, particularly with UNHCR and the Thai government, on salient protection issues relating to asylum-seekers, refugees, and stateless persons in Thailand; identify legal areas appropriate for national or regional advocacy efforts. Assist the JRS advocacy officer in planning related activities; advise and work in conjunction with the JRS office in Thailand and other countries in the region on the development and implementation of advocacy projects and initiatives, especially in providing legal input as requested/relevant; and together with the Country Director develop capacity building programmes in advocacy/ protection related issues for JRS staff in Thailand.
