SAHRC requests proposals/ expressions of interest from consultants for a Project on Policy Options for Addressing Poverty Traps and Social Exclusion Among Children in South Africa.

Given the high incidence as well as depth of poverty for various groups of children,this assignment seeks to examine the possibility of the existence of the phenomena of poverty traps and social exclusion among South Africa’s children, and the additional national and societal efforts that are needed to break such traps. For the full Terms of Reference in this regard, please click here.

In context of the above overall objective of the assignment, consultants are ultimately expected to produce the following outputs:

1. On the basis of high quality analysis, a report on:(a) the characteristics of children caught up in the phenomena of poverty traps and social exclusion, underlying causes of their situation and implications for policy; (b) characteristics of children who were but have escaped poverty traps and social exclusion, underlying factors for their ‘escape’ and implications for policy;

2. A report on lessons from South Africa as well as countries that have successfully eliminated/substantially reduced poverty traps and social exclusion;

3. On the basis of high quality policy analysis, a report on concrete policy recommendations to lift children out of poverty traps and closer to the goal of a more inclusive society. Policy recommendations should cover two areas: (a) modification of existing policy instruments and/or additional policy instruments required to break the phenomenon of poverty traps and social exclusion among children; (b) governance/institutional measures to ensure the implementation of policy recommendations.

Please submit your proposal surrounding these deliverables, together with CV and contactable references to nbreen@sahrc.org.za by no later than 12 April 2013. For more information contact Nicole Breen on nbreen@sahrc.org.za / 011 877 3676. "
