Title                            : Baseline Research Consultant Team

Program                     : Ending Violence Against Women (EVAW)

Unit                             : Timor-Leste Office

Reports to                  : Research and M&E Coordinator




The Asia Foundation (the Foundation) is implementing the EVAW Program in Timor-Leste under a Grant Agreement with the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The EVAW Program goal is to reduce the proportion of women who have experienced violence, and to improve the well-being of women and children affected by violence. The program aims to improve outcomes for women and children in prevention, support services, and access to justice by improving capacity in key ministries, reducing levels of violence, improving services, and strengthening justice processes. The program will focus on five so-called hub districts that have existing services and facilities. These districts are Dili, Baucau, Bobonaro, Covalima, and Oecusse. The program will also work in non-hub pilot districts, likely to be Viqueque and Manufahi.


The EVAW Program will be informed by research conducted on the underlying causes of VAW and opportunities for EVAW in Timor-Leste relating to the core pillars of prevention, service provision, and access to justice. The EVAW Program aims to develop evidence-based practice across the program and to close the feedback loop between research, activity design, monitoring results and impact, and revising design. The program hopes to identify relevant international experience and link with research both internationally and locally, as well as draw on the Foundation’s wealth of potentially relevant research.


The Foundation will engage a team of consultants to develop and conduct a survey on the prevalence and perpetration of VAW, including attitudes and behaviors, to provide a baseline for the program goal of reducing the proportion of women who have experienced violence in the last 12 months, as well as for the End of Program Outcomes under the Prevention Pillar. The survey data will also be used in other program research activities.
