Short Consultancy - Xenophobia in S. Africa Western Cape

South Africa Xenophobia Programmes Evaluation Terms of Reference November 4 2013 Purpose and Description of the Evaluation: Overall Context Xenophobia commonly defined as the fear of the other is gaining ground as an inhibitor to providing protection to refugees stateless persons asylum seekers and internally displaced persons. This fear has been compounded by the current global economic crisis and the deteriorating political and social environment in some countries. It poses additional challenges to the protection of people of concern to UNHCR. 1 Although xenophobia is often linked to economic decline and competition for a shrinking pool of jobs it is noteworthy that this problem exists in industrialized states as well as the developing countries who are the host to most of the world s refugees. Xenophobia can take the shape of a spectrum of activities from ugly remarks and bullying to gender based violence and mobs that result in deaths. Lately notable xenophobic attacks targeting persons of concern to UNHCR have occurred in all five geographic regions: Colombians in Ecuador and Costa Rica; Zimbabweans and other Africans in South Africa; Somalis and people from the DRC in Kenya; the Rohingya in Myanmar and asylum seekers in Greece. These situations are of grave concern to UNHCR and its partners. They provide examples where the overall protection environment has been directly jeopardized by widespread and generally accepted xenophobic attitudes that have resulted in human rights abuses. While xenophobia occurs in all contexts the urbanization of refugee populations is another factor in the ongoing phenomenon of xenophobia. As more refugees and asylum seekers are independently seeking exile in urban and peri-urban areas 2 they may be exposed to racism and intolerant attitudes that can prevent them from pursuing safe livelihoods placing their children in public schools using health care and social welfare systems and moving freely throughout the city because they are in competition for the same economic opportunities and services as host country nationals. To date UNHCR and its partners have a limited presence in urban areas and may not be immediately available to intervene on the behalf of refugees who are victims of xenophobic attacks or even worse may not be known to them as a source of legal and social support. Beyond assaults the pervasiveness of xenophobic attitudes and policies is surfacing as a hindrance to refugees abilities to lead productive lives in cities. In a recent survey of UNHCR s largest urban refugee operations the repercussions of xenophobia emerged as a challenge to fostering constructive relationships with host communities pursuing livelihoods and accessing a durable solution i.e. integration into the city. In addition to contributing to interagency initiatives to battle xenophobia UNHCR issued a policy paper Combating racism racial discrimination xenophobia and related intolerance through a strategic approach in December 2009. The policy offers seven strategies on addressing the threat of pandemic xenophobia in country operations. The strategies involve engaging with various stakeholders including the media states international organizations law-enforcement community and faith based organizations. Xenophobia in the context of UNHCR s Regional Office in South Africa (ROSA) While Senior Government officials acknowledge the situation the response to xenophobia remains a major challenge. To better address incidents of xenophobic violence against refugees asylum seekers and migrants and as a way to promote greater tolerance of migrants UNHCR launched a Roll Back of Xenophobia Campaign (RBX) in 1998. The Campaign was carried out in partnership with the South Africa Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) and the National Consortium on Refugee Affairs (NCRA). The Campaign ran until 2007 when due to a number of problems including funding it was brought to an end. Despite the end to the formal campaign UNHCR s education and awareness raising efforts continued within its regular programming. Following the wave of xenophobic attacks in 2008 UNHCR s involvement in the prevention and response to violence and discrimination against populations of concern changed. Its focus now includes in addition to education and awareness a community outreach and community safety programme including working with the South African Police Services (SAPS) and other strategic partners. Xenophobic-related violence continues to affect persons of concern. Such incidents not only generate fear and increased insecurity which adversely affects the quality of asylum enjoyed but they also often result in the destruction of livelihoods physical injuries and death. Moreover they have a negative impact on local integration both due to the destruction of livelihoods and as a consequence of the trauma it creates. The lack of a comprehensive and effective response to address the root causes of such violence has necessitated the continued involvement by UNHCR to prevent xenophobia and increase response activities. Yet these activities are only a fraction of the UNHCR ROSA budget today. Within UNHCR only one staff member (the Senior Regional Community Service Officer) working with one NGO (the Displaced Migrant Person Support Program DMPSP formally known as Militia Trust ) is directly implementing anti-xenophobia programming with UNHCR s support. Since 2008 the interagency response has been more promising. In March 2009 a Protection Working Group (PWG) was established under the UN Framework for Action. Originally created to respond to the mass influx of Zimbabweans and the increasing xenophobic violence it has developed into a key mechanism for analysing the nature of incidents and mobilising response to xenophobia. The PWG has also served to enhance cooperation and dialogue amongst UNHCR different department of the Government NGOs as well as the civil society. This dialogue created an opportunity for UNHCR to play a catalytic role in the prevention of and response to xenophobia as well as in promoting social cohesion between refugees migrants and South Africans. For instance through the PWG and in conjunction with the Conference of Bishops the South African Human Rights Commission and other actors UNHCR was instrumental in containing the 2010 xenophobic violence preceding the World Cup and expediting reintegration of 20 000 refugees displaced because of xenophobic threats. In essence the PWG has created a space to link key stakeholders and provide a coordinated operational response to xenophobia which includes an emergency hotline and community safety/outreach programs. In discussions with the Government the key players acknowledge the on-going trend of xenophobia and that consistent effort is required to combat the issue. In her keynote speech on World Refugee Day on 20 June 2013 the Minister of Home Affairs publicly condemned xenophobia and acknowledged that much needs to be combat the violence and educate the community. UNHCR commends the current efforts by the South African Police (SAPS) to prevent and respond to xenophobia. In order to enhance the response and the long-term consolidation of social cohesion the on-going efforts should lead to a more effective mechanism with the involvement of key departments amongst others the Department of Justice Social Development Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA) as well as Trade and Industry. It should be noted that in the past years the Department of Home Affairs and the South African Trade Unions have been responsive on the agenda on xenophobia and social cohesion but as earlier said there is still much to be done. UNHCR recently drafted a strategy for sustained work on anti-xenophobia campaigns and community outreach. The programme to combat xenophobia and build social cohesion has had four key aims (please see addendum for more detail): (i) Information management to prevent violence and protect refugees from xenophobic attacks (ii) Rapid re-documentation of those having lost their documents during attacks to minimize hardships (iii) Reintegration of refugees and asylum-seekers to their places of former livelihood to reduce hardships and isolation (iv) Negotiation with local authorities to improve response time and prevent future xenophobic attacks With UNHCR support the DMPSP (formally known as Militia Trust) works in the front line and provides a direct response to on-going xenophobia. Funding has also been provided by UNHCR-ROSA for other implementing partners and projects that address xenophobia more indirectly to combatting xenophobia e.g. advocacy work and the promotion of local integration and community sensitization projects. UNHCR ROSA has also tried to complement the States protection response to xenophobia by engaging the Congress for South African Trade Unions (COSATU) to empower refugees via their access to trade unions and inclusion in the lobbying for changes in current labour laws. Such work seeks to remove the perception that refugees are sabotaging the labour market by driving down salaries by working for lower wages. As it stands UNHCR s implementing partners (IPs) are limited in their ability to effectuate complete social and legal responses due to funding and capacity constraints. However these IP s allow UNHCR a sustained presence at the Musina border point as well as in the Western Cape Eastern Cape Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Gauteng. Their work in litigating is effective and consistent but limited in scope. Dedicated motivated partners as well as a lack of physical human and fiscal resources are all serious challenges in implementing UNHCR ROSA s strategy to combat xenophobia. UNHCR ROSA strives for a significant preventive as opposed to a wholly remedial approach to xenophobia programming. Implementing this approach requires coordination and commitment at all levels of civil society. If implemented it would significantly enhance the credibility not only of UNHCR ROSA but all humanitarian actors and civil society. And the time is nigh. Recent reports from the Southern Africa region suggest that xenophobia is increasing in countries that previously welcomed and allowed asylum seekers and refugees to live and enjoy peaceful asylum. In many countries the competition for scarce resources secondary movements of asylum seekers concerns over terrorism and the perceived need to protect national security has resulted in negative political discourse and inaction on the part of government to prevent populations of concern from xenophobic attacks. In the present protection climate characterised by restrictive asylum policies and practice the need to preserve the asylum space is becoming more critical. It is against this complex and evolving backdrop that an independent review to assess the extent and scope to which UNHCR has been able to provide timely and effective protection to refugees and asylum seekers who are victims of xenophobia in South Africa is required. The main evaluation questions are as follows: 1. To what extent is the current UNHCR ROSA strategy effective in combatting xenophobia? How effective will it be in face of trends of escalating xenophobia? How effective and sustainable is the current strategy? What is the impact of the investments made to date? Are the current partnership arrangements the most appropriate ones in combatting xenophobia? What are the consequences and risks reputational and otherwise for UNHCR ROSA should they not be able to deliver effective protection from xenophobic incidents and attitudes. 2. What are the lessons learnt in overcoming inhibitors to anti-xenophobia programming? How can persons of concern bridge with host communities to diminish fear and discrimination? How can these lessons and associated good practices best be shared?3. To what extent is UNHCR ROSA using the guidance provided in the 2009 anti-xenophobia policy? What is the level of familiarity amongst field based staff? Have they provided feedback on the implementation of the policy? Has the field been given additional support in implementing the policy? Methods: This evaluation will be an on-site review based on qualitative and quantitative data generated by coded focus group sessions interviews document reviews and the budget and programming information available in Focus.The following regions locations will be covered targeting the various groups of persons of concern (table below).

The workshop will be co-facilitated by PDES and UNHCR ROSA. The evaluation will be administratively managed and edited by UNHCR s Policy Development and Evaluation Service (PDES) in Geneva Switzerland. The consultant will work directly with the designated staff in the UNHCR ROSA in Pretoria South Africa. UNHCR ROSA will provide logistical support to the consultant. A steering group convened by PDES will be formed to guide the review provide periodic feedback (literature review questionnaires draft documents) and ensure the relevance of the document to stakeholders within and beyond UNHCR. UNHCR ROSA staff the Xenophobia Unit of UNHCR s Division of International Protection (DIP) the Solutions Unit of DIP and key members of UNHCR s Africa Bureau staff will be invited to be steering committee members. The deliverables for this review include: a well-written concise document that answers the three evaluation questions a literature review summarizing the most contemporary analysis of cases of intolerance racism discrimination and xenophobia toward forcibly displaced persons and migrants in South Africa; semi-structured focus group questionnaires to provide a baseline of incidents and policy implementation; case studies featuring positive and transferable practices in combating xenophobia; and a section of the report detailing the findings and recommendations on further actions to mitigate xenophobia toward persons of concern to UNHCR. At number of field missions will be associated with this review. An independent consultant will be recruited to research and author the review. The recruitment will be through a request for proposals based on the publication of this Terms of Reference. The consultant will report jointly to the UNHCR/PDES Evaluation Managers and the dedicated UNHCR ROSA official. The closing date for applications is November 13th.
