This Workshop will bring together scholars and parliamentarians in order to discuss research findings which are likely to be of practical use to parliamentarians. Following the practice of recent Workshops, there will be a concluding plenary session addressing problems faced by parliaments in the 21stCentury. This time, the concluding plenary will focus on sexism, harassment and violence against women parliamentarians. The session will discuss the possible forms of parliamentary action to combat this phenomenon, and will be informed by the recent studies carried out by the IPU.
