Research in UK Parliament

Between 2014 and 2017, POST studied the use of research evidence within parliamentary debate and scrutiny, including the impact of POST.

The project investigated how research evidence is conceived and used within the UK Parliament. The mixed-method approach involved surveys, interviews, in-depth case studies and documentary analysis.

The study examined how MPs, Peers, MPs' staff and parliamentary staff define and use research evidence, and explored the diverse routes through which research evidence is mobilised throughout Parliament.
