The Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) have just launched an online survey about the barriers to engaging with Parliament specifically for academics, which we would love readers to respond to and share.
The survey is 14 questions long and should take around five minutes to complete. They would welcome contributions from anyone with something to tell them, although they are particularly interested in hearing from academics from groups who engage less with Parliament: women, academics from BAME backgrounds, and academics with disabilities.
After the close of the survey on 18 August, they’ll be reporting the findings on the LSE blog and elsewhere and, most importantly, they’ll be developing activities focused on addressing some of the barriers identified and supporting a wider range of academics to engage with the business of Parliament.
So please, take five minutes to share your thoughts and help POST make Parliament and parliamentary processes more inclusive and representative.
The survey can be completed here and closes on 18 August.
