As a Parliamentary Academic Fellow hosted by the House of Lords Library, Ruth Dixon will be researching the impact of Peers’ scrutiny of legislation. She will use novel computer-aided methods to analyse how bills were amended in the 2016-17 session, and will produce a detailed visual case study of one bill from that session. This project will extend the studies described in Ruth’s recent paper in Parliamentary Affairs ‘Mapping Mutations in Legislation; A Bioinformatics Approach’ and her post on the PSA Parliaments blog.
