Improving women’s electoral chances through an evidence-based approach

11 Dec 2016
Description

Abstract

The Pacific Islands have the lowest level of female parliamentary representation of any region in the world, and electoral trends point to the very slow pace of change. There are 19 male members of parliament to every one female member in the region, compared to four to one globally. This reflects a range of structural factors such as the uneven distribution of power and resources, as well as cultural values. It also reflects the highly competitive nature of electoral politics in the region.
