Political representation of women and indigenous peoples: Evidence from the Peruvian quotas
This paper seeks to advance the analysis of substantive representation of marginalised groups through a critical assessment of quotas in Peru. It provides a review of theoretical underpinnings and key concepts of political representation of disadvantaged groups, along with electoral aspects of quotas and their influence on policy outcomes. Focusing on the Peruvian case, it gives an account of the evolution of electoral quotas and problems associated with their implementation. Finally, it advances alternatives to improve representation of underrepresented groups.
