Data Analytics for Parliament Legislative and Oversight Processes
As an organization, parliament cannot disregard the importance of data, which are a compilation of facts that support institutional activity performance. Data constitute a bundle of information from which analysts detect patterns of social dynamics that characterize change in the social, cultural, economic, and political landscape. Inasmuch as law making and oversight are not undertaken in vacuum, they amount to processes of examining available information significant of social and cultural evolution as well as economic and political development, and through deliberative analysis and study, translating such information into proposed legislation or normative values of human and institutional conduct. With the analysis of collected data parliaments gain insights into the patterns shaping the national community, which helps to better predict the trends and create a practical and attuned law making process.
The webinar will cover the following themes:
Data Collection Methods
Types of Data Analysis
Data Analysis for Parliamentary Processes
Combination of Data Analytics and Law Making: From Data to Legislation
A sound data analytics task ensures clarity of vision about where society is headed and how to approach that evolution from a legislative standpoint. Law making and oversight are not merely directional markers. They reflect cognitive dimensions highlighted in the contribution of social actors through their opinions and behaviors collected through surveys, research and analysis. Data analytics brings constituents and their opinions, objectives and perspectives into the core of the legislative and oversight processes, thus making surveyed individual and social actors through data collection an epistemic community that partners with the legislative body to institute normative signposts as reference in national development.
