Electoral Processes in Selected Countries of the Middle East: A Case Study

The paper includes three brief case studies of the electoral processes in Yemen, Lebanon and Jordan. It attempts to assess how the electoral process in each of these countries was supportive, or not, of women’s participation. It also identifies the similarities and differences among them to help draw conclusions and make recommendations on how to better support women’s participation in elections in the Arab region, as well as in other post-conflict countries.
