We would like to invite you to submit your abstracts to an international conference that will be held in Ústí nad Labem (Czech Republic) focusing on the political representation of women.

Can we really talk about democracy if women in politics are still a minority? What are the factors influencing their representation? What are the specifics of representation of women in the post-communist area? How were women represented in the past? We welcome papers on these and other topics related to the political representation of women.

Preferred topics:

  • Representation of women at national level of governance
  • Representation of women at subnational level of governance
  • Determinants of political representation of women
  • Effect of quotas
  • Historical perspectives on the representation of women
