Gender Mainstreaming for the Legal Sector
This manual has been prepared to serve as a tool for legal drafters in integrating a gender perspective in all new laws and regulations to be enacted in Malta. It identifies those parts of the existing laws which do not properly reflect the principles of gender equality and gender mainstreaming and proposes amendments to ensure that such principles are reflected in the said laws. This manual also seeks to guide and assist legislators, policy makers, members of the judiciary and members of the legal profession to enact, analyse and interpret laws and/or regulations keeping in mind the principles of gender mainstreaming and to seek to identify situations of discrimination, both in the initial stages of the drafting of the legislation and policies as well as in the understanding and interpretation of laws and policies.
Part of The Gender Aspect From a Legal Perspective- Gender Mainstreaming Toolkits. Development and distribution of three toolkits targeting managers within the Public and Private Sector and Legal Service Providers about how to gender mainstream, and what gender mainstreaming is.
