Genre et gestion locale du changement dans sept pays de l'union européenne

Objective

This comparative research project based on a case study concerns seven countries of the European Union - Belgium, France, Finland, Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Sweden. Its purpose is to locate the possibilities of change resulting from women's increased participation in local government. It intends to bring out the effects of the gendered composition of elected political bodies and women's dynamic contribution to the fate of the community.
In order to do this it will examine:
1) what is women's current place in decision making and the reasons for sex inequality in political representation;
2) the impact of the informal political sphere (NGOs etc) on the decisions of elected representatives as well as women's role in this type of activity;
3) the effects of shifts in the forms of government (weight of inter-communal bodies, interaction between local and EU level) and the way in which these influence gender relations.
