Westminster Workshop on Gender Sensitive Scrutiny

Published 23 December 2019

Delivered in June 2019, this programme was highly participatory and interactive and invited rigorous discussion using the context in Westminster as a starting point to explore gender sensitive scrutiny. The Workshop provided a unique opportunity for both male and female parliamentarians from across the Commonwealth to discuss common experiences and challenges in assessing the implications of budgets, policies and legislation for different genders.

The programme focused on learning from the experiences of others and the sharing of knowledge between participants. CPA UK drew on best practice from across the Commonwealth to design this programme for it to enable parliamentarians to reflect on their own roles, responsibilities and opportunities and develop key skills to improve their capacity as representatives and legislators in the crucial functions of scrutiny and oversight from a gender perspective.
