Data and gender-sensitive post-legislative scrutiny

Data and gender-sensitive post-legislative scrutiny
This case study examines the importance and the key role of gender-sensitive data in gender-sensitive post-legislative scrutiny.
The case study identifies the relationship between gender, legislation and data, examines the concept of gender-sensitive data and its features, importance, sources and potential uses in post legislative scrutiny. It explores ways in which parliamentary committees can collect gender-sensitive data, and identifies strategies to generate gender-sensitive data and to make sure findings and results are gender-sensitive.

The case study is part of a broader project of the Westminster Foundation for Democracy on gender analysis and post-legislative scrutiny. The project includes several deliverables that are complementary to the present
document and address different aspects of the topic. These are: a policy brief on gender-sensitive post-legislative scrutiny; a case study on gender-sensitive post-legislative scrutiny of general legislation and a case study on post-legislative scrutiny of gender-specific legislation.
