No wp-2017-74, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: We study the impact of electoral gender quotas in post-war Burundi and Rwanda on women's political representation. First, we look at descriptive representation by studying the number of female representatives and the prestige of their positions in the legislative and executive branches of government. Second, we focus on political representation as perceived by ordinary women, before, during, and after the introduction of gender quotas.
