The case study titled: ‘Gender-sensitive post-legislative scrutiny of general legislation’ examines how post-legislative scrutiny of gender (non-gender-specific) legislation can integrate a gender-informed approach. 

The present document 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.
