Diversity and Female Political Participation: Views on and from the Arab World

15.05.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

This report focuses on the political participation of women within the huge diversity of the Arab world: how have the views and political experiences of women contributed to the democratization of Arab societies? What are the roles of Islam and civil society as facilitators of women' s participation in Islamic countries? These issues are analysed according to the historical and current developments of gender relations and the role of women in politics. Through several specific examples, this publication analyses how women position themselves halfway between the institutional rules and their own political struggle for their rights and access to resources.
