Gender-Sensitive Post-Legislative Scrutiny of general legislation

Gender-Sensitive Post-Legislative Scrutiny of general legislation
This case study examines how post-legislative scrutiny of gender (non-gender-specific) legislation can integrate a gender-informed approach.

The case starts by identifying the links between legislation and gender, and the impact of legislation on women, men and non-binary people. It highlights the importance of gender-sensitive laws as a vehicle to gender equality and identifies the role and contribution of gender-sensitive post-legislative scrutiny to this purpose. It then proposes concrete steps on how to make the entire post-legislative scrutiny process 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 post-legislative scrutiny of gender-specific legislation and a case study on the key role of data in gender-sensitive post-legislative scrutiny.
