Informing the policy agenda: Equality Bodies making recommendations
Authors: Niall Crowley
This perspective addresses the policy advice function of Equality Bodies, focused on Equality Bodies making recommendations on legislation, policy, and policy-making systems. It responds to the significant investment of time and expertise by Equality Bodies in making such recommendations, and seeks to inform peer learning among Equality Bodies on effective strategies and practices in this. It seeks to inform consideration by the European institutions of Directives on Standards for Equality Bodies proposed by the European Commission, in terms of their focus on this policy advice function.
