Invitation to NAI Book Launch - "Gendered Institutions and Women’s Political Representation in Africa"

You are hereby invited to a Webinar hosted by The Nordic Africa Institute (NAI)

During this webinar, a new book 'Gendered Institutions and Women's Political Representation in Africa' will be launched. The book explains the uneven developments on the continent with selected case studies of both the 'success cases' and the less successful cases from different regions.

During the course of the last three decades efforts of democratisation and institutional reforms have characterised the African continent including demands for gender equality and women's political representation. As a result, some countries have introduced affirmative action measures either in the aftermath of conflicts or as part of broader constitutional reforms whereas others are falling behind this fast track to women's political representation.

Date: 25th March 2021

Time: 14:00 – 16:00 (UTC+1)

Platform: Zoom

Attendance by registration, register here:
