The Women and Equalities Committee and Home Affairs Committee have published a joint Area of Research Interest on ‘Violence against women and girls’ to help support their ongoing scrutiny in this topic area. The ARI comes with several specific areas of interest aiming to further break down the broad area and focus the responses received from the research community.

One of the ways in which UK Parliament’s Select Committees gather research evidence on topics of interest, is by developing and publishing Areas of Research Interest (ARIs).
ARIs are lists of policy issues or questions. POST uses ARIs to scope and inform future work, and to seek expert contributions. Other parliamentary teams, such as the Commons Library and the Lords Library, as well as committee research teams, use ARIs in a similar way.
ARIs are not an exhaustive list of all research areas that Parliament may be interested in the future, and committees also gather evidence via other routes, such as calls for evidence.
