Free article (limited time): ‘Electoral quotas and political representation: Comparative perspectives’ by Mona Lena Krook and Pär Zetterberg

The map below shows the spread of state mandated quotas for women and minorities around the world as of December 2008. Electoral quotas have emerged as one of the critical political reforms of the last two decades, affecting a wide range of representative processes. However, the evidence is not yet conclusive with regard to what quotas ‘mean’ more broadly, either for politics at large or for the empowerment of group members. Taking up this challenge, this special issue of IPSR co-edited by Mona Lena Krook and Pär Zetterberg brings together articles that collectively expand the current research agenda to theorise and assess the wider impact of electoral quotas.
