Diversity in parliament: Listening to the voices of minorities and indigenous peoples

The interviews presented in this publication relate the personal experiences of 14 parliamentarians who describe their journey to parliament and the challenges they have faced in fulfilling their responsibilities. The interviews highlight that every country has its own political, historical and cultural context; there can be no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach when seeking to promote more inclusive parliaments. They also draw out the many differences in perspectives among the minority and indigenous parliamentarians themselves. At the same time, the interviews offer hope that change is possible within the democratic system of governance.
