// DISSERTATION PROJECT


Political Institutions and the Substantive Representation of Women’s Interests.

Numerous studies on women’s political representation show that female legislators focus more strongly on the representation of women specific interests than their male colleagues. Thus, a greater presence of women in parliaments (descriptive representation) should automatically lead to a higher representation of women’s issues (substantive representation). By now, however, our understanding of the causal mechanisms and the theoretical links between descriptive and substantive representation of women is all but clear. In particular, we know very little about the effect of institutional variables on the parliamentary behavior of women and under which conditions female representatives actually act more strongly in the interests of women. My dissertation project tries to fill this research gap, and analyzes the effect of different political institutions (e.g. electoral system) on the substantive representation of women.
