Women in politics: current trends and challenges in the Arab States

Inclusive and  effective political institutions (parliament, constituent assemblies, and political parties) are critical to respond to  citizen’s expectations for voice, development and  accountability: this requires a constant engagement with  political actors on the ground, a high level of trust-building  measures, responsiveness to quickly deliver on very  technical demands and adaptability to volatile and highly  fluid political environments .

Every month, AGORA publishes an Arab Digest bringing you the latest news and updates from the Arab region.  The July issue focuses on women parliamentarians in the Arab States, current trends, obstacles and achievements. It sheds light on the 20th anniversary of the Beijing platform and links to the latest Agora brief  on Enhancing women’s representation in parliamentary institutions- The institutional and legal framework.
