ABOUT THE TIJ
Building on Thailand’s engagement in the UN Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, Thailand Institute of Justice (TIJ) was established in 2011 with the aim to promote excellence in research and capacity-building in the area of criminal justice. The institute serves as a bridge that transports global ideas to local practices. The primary objective is to promote the implementation of United Nations Rules for the Treatment of Women Prisoners and Non-custodial Measures for Women Offenders (the Bangkok Rules) as well as other United Nations standards and norms related to women and children in contact with the criminal justice system.
As a member of the United Nations Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Programme Network Institute (UNPNI), TIJ also gears its work towards important cross-cutting issues on the United Nations agenda such as the rule of law, sustainable development, human rights, peace and security. At the same time, it works toward enhancing domestic justice system and the rule-based community within the ASEAN region.
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME / PROJECT
The Implementation of the Bangkok Rules and Treatment of Offenders Programme (IBR) supports the work of the TIJ in promoting and supporting the implementation of the UN standards and norms related to the treatment of offenders nationally, regionally and internationally. The core activities of IBR include 1) policy advocacy; 2) research; and 3) capacity building. We work to:
The Model Prison Project is one of the flagship projects under the IBR programme with the objective to support correctional facilities and correctional departments in Thailand and other ASEAN countries in improving and maintaining the prison management in line with international standards and norms, especially to meet the requirements of the United Nations Rules for the Treatment of Women Prisoners and Non-custodial Measures for Women Offenders (the Bangkok Rules) and the United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners (Nelson Mandela Rules).
In 2015, TIJ in cooperation with the Department of Corrections of Thailand established the “Model Prison Project” with the aim to enhance understanding of prison staff about the UN Bangkok Rules and the Nelson Mandela Rules, to encourage prisons/correctional institutes across Thailand to carry out their policies and practices on the treatment of women prisoners in line with Rules and to ensure that the Rules are implemented effectively and sustainably. Main focuses of the Model Prison Project include enhancement of prison staffs’ skills and attitudes, correctional facility improvement and promoting gender-sensitive correctional practices.
Correctional institutes around the country are invited to join the project and be evaluated in several aspects using the indicators developed by TIJ and the Department of Corrections. Prior to the evaluation, each prison is tasked to achieve gender sensitive operations in several areas within one-year period while technical support is provided by TIJ during the improvement process. Finally, each prison will be evaluated using the evaluation tool whereas prisons with satisfactory evaluation result are designated as the Model Prison.
Project Manager will mainly, but not exclusively, be involved in the overall management of the “Model Prison Project”. Her/his role will also include providing support and substantive inputs for other activities related to research and policy advocacy. This position involves frequent domestic travel and some international travel.
