Measuring inclusive decision making: Using administrative data to measure representation in the legislature, public service and the judiciary

Date: 
Tuesday, December 8, 2020 - 15:00 to 16:30

The UNDP Oslo Governance Centre and Inter-Parliamentary Union are inviting data producers and users to a discussion on measuring inclusive decision-making in parliaments, public service and judiciary.

How can we measure progress towards more representative and inclusive decision-making? SDG16 as part of the 2030 Agenda calls for a better understanding of how different population groups are represented in parliaments, public service and judiciary. The SDG framework encourages countries to report on the proportions of positions in public institutions compared to national distributions and to better understand the extent to which people of different age groups, sex, population groups, or disability are represented in decision-making positions. IPU and UNDP as custodians of different parts of this indicator will provide an update on the indicators and representatives of national statistics offices will share their reflections on challenges encountered as well as existing opportunities and strategies that have been adopted. Aimed at data producers such as national statistics offices, parliaments, public administrations, judiciary, as well as users such as policy makers, this webinar seeks to increase awareness on producing and using data for more inclusive and representative public institutions.
