Abstract

The PIP project - Predicting the Impact of Policy: gender-auditing as a means of assessing the probable impact of policy initiatives on women - was an international collaborative venture involving participants in Ireland (University College Cork), Portugal (Universidade Fernando Pessoa, Oporto), Spain (Universidad Complutense de Madrid), Sweden (University of Lund) and the United Kingdom (University of Liverpool).
The long-term aim of the PIP project was to develop a model for assessing gender impact that could form an integral part of the law and policy-making processes of a state. In its initial stages the PIP project assembled data on the strategies employed in the partner states to ensure that women's interests are addressed within the law and policy-making processes. Country reports were prepared detailing such measures and assessing their respective strengths and weaknesses by drawing on academic and feminist critiques.
