The e-Discussion on Women’s Political Representation and Participation at the local level was launched on 2 February 2018 in Arabic, English, French and Spanish and ended on 8 March 2018. Experts, practitioners, and researchers discussed about the challenges and opportunities for women’s representation in local government and its role in helping achieve gender equality and empower women at the local level.
Twenty-four participants from Sub-Saharan Africa, the Arab region, Asia, the Americas and Europe engaged in the online debate and submitted contributions. The e-Discussion gathered twenty contributions in English, three in French and one in Spanish.
