This book explores the politics of gender and democracy in post-communist Europe.Utilising the concept of political representation, the book scrutinises women's legislative presence and highlights the opportunities and obstacles to parity democracy in this region of Europe. The book examines the link between women's membership of national parliaments and the substantive representation of gender interests. It investigates the role of civil society, the state and the European Union in representing women's interests and in promoting gender politics. The book provides an important and timely contribution to the classical political questions of who represents, what is represented, and how representation takes place. In adopting an integrated approach to political representation, the book extends current understanding of this fundamental concept. Using new research, it provides the first comprehensive comparative analysis of the interplay between emerging democracies and gender politics in post-communist Europe.

Abstract

This book explores the politics of gender and democracy in post-communist Europe.Utilising the concept of political representation, the book scrutinises women's legislative presence and highlights the opportunities and obstacles to parity democracy in this region of Europe. The book examines the link between women's membership of national parliaments and the substantive representation of gender interests. It investigates the role of civil society, the state and the European Union in representing women's interests and in promoting gender politics. The book provides an important and timely contribution to the classical political questions of who represents, what is represented, and how representation takes place. In adopting an integrated approach to political representation, the book extends current understanding of this fundamental concept. Using new research, it provides the first comprehensive comparative analysis of the interplay between emerging democracies and gender politics in post-communist Europe.
