Title: Call for Expression of Interest (EOI) for a Gender Consultant

The rate of Sexual and Gender Based Violence in Nigeria witnessed a spike primarily during the during the COVID-19 lockdown measures by the federal government. The period also saw an increase in intimate partner violence because of the lockdown measures. The concern many people have raised is about legal standards and state mechanisms expected to mitigate the scourge of sexual and gender-based violence in the Nigerian society.

Primarily, concerns have been drawn to the role of the Nigeria Police Force in the fight against SGBV in the country. Complementing the various existing extant laws designed for the protection of the rights and dignity of women and the girl child in the country, the Nigeria Police Force created a gender unit setup primarily to handle complaints around SGBV in the country. Although a laudable step by the police, it is still unclear to many observers how the unit has handled the fight against SGBV in the country. To therefore expand the scope of the discourse, it is imperative to explore the perception of the public and personnel of the Nigeria Police Force.


  • Investigate the knowledge, attitude, practice, and experience of the public on the strategies of the police towards mitigating sexual and gender-based violence in Nigeria.
  • Examine ways and strategies of combating the menace of SGBV in the country.

In view of the above, CLEEN Foundation is inviting applications from gender experts with vast trackable experience in gender studies in Nigeria.
