The publication “Guidelines on gender dimension in legal research” presents five concrete steps for gender dimension integration throughout the research cycle, including at the design stage, the operational phase and the reflexive phase. Specific practices aimed at gender dimension integration are grounded in the interdisciplinary approach. This relies on the concepts and methods from jurisprudence, as well as from other disciplines, such as sociology, psychology, history, and economics.
Gender dimension integration involves the identification and consideration of the gender characteristics of an individual. This includes gender-based differences in legal standing, needs, interests, access to resources and opportunities in specific social contexts, including its cultural, social, economic, political and other aspects.
