The objective of the Better Migration Management (BMM) program is to improve the migration management in the Eastern African region in response to the needs identified by the countries of the Khartoum Process, and to address the trafficking of human beings and the smuggling of migrants within and from the Horn of Africa in a rights-based and migrant-centered way.

The BMM program has four components:
1. Policy Harmonization, strengthening national approaches to migration management through a whole-of-government approach to migration and border governance as well as enhancing migration coordination;
2. Capacity Building, providing training and assistance to enhance migration-related criminal investigations and prosecutions;
3. Protection of Vulnerable Migrants, improving the identification, assistance, and protection of vulnerable migrants, especially children on the move; and
4. Awareness-Raising, raising knowledge of migration options and host/local communities.

In the framework of implementing component 3 of the BMM program, we focus on strengthening the capacity of the Djibouti National Commission for Human Rights (CNDH), which is responsible in Djibouti for promotion and protection of human rights in general and migration and human rights in particular. It includes support to the CNDH in extending their mandate at local level and to enable them to better and more answer to the human rights violations which occur in the regions. To this effect, GIZ-BMM support the efforts of the Djibouti National Commission for Human Rights in extending it roles to the entire Republic of Djibouti and thus to enhance their interventions on human rights violations which occurred in the regions.

On that sense , plans are there to support the CNDH in establishing regional representations in the regions in order to receive listen and collect the complaints from the migrants and the host community related on human rights violations. In addition to that, the regional offices will be in charge to sensitize and inform better the targeted population on the fundamental human rights as per the national laws and the international conventions.

Given the roles that the regional representations are expected to play and the fact that the targeted audiences are illiterate, GIZ-BMM will support the CNDH to develop and conceptualize messages on human rights in order to spreads the human rights concepts amongst the target audience.

So to this effect, GIZ-BMM is seeking a national communication expert on Human rights in order to develop communication materials.
