Kvinnors politiska representation Hur kan den rumsliga variationen i Afrika förklaras?

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

Sammanfattning: During the last few years the countries in the African continent have experienced an enormous increase in female politicians on a national level. Rwanda is even the country with the highest number of female politicians in its parliament in the world. Despite this development in Africa, the quantitative research on women's political representation in the world has not yet paid attention to the situation there. Some of the surveys that have been done have even excluded countries that do not fit the homogeneous pattern ? which is precisely the problem with African countries ? for it to be possible to explain the situation with existing theories. The intention of this paper is therefore to, with all of the 53 African countries included in the study, examine whether the already existing explanatory factors regarding women's political representation also can be applied to an African context to explain the situation there. Through a cross-national statistical analysis it has become visible that the explanatory factors that have been used in previous research cannot explain the differences in women's political representation in Africa. Instead it takes other factors and perhaps even a completely different approach to be able to show the reason for the differences in women's political representation in Africa.
