Realizing gender equality in parliaments: transforming institutions, delivering for all women and men
In 2020 and early 2021, ODIHR conducted a study on best practices and lessons learned on gender sensitivity of national parliaments in the OSCE region. This research, conducted in collaboration with the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly and 46 national parliaments of OSCE participating States, led to the development of “Realizing Gender Equality in Parliament: A Guide for Parliaments in the OSCE Region”. This practical guide was published in December 2021. It is intended to assist all parliamentary actors — from parliamentary leadership teams, members of parliament, and political and parliamentary staff, to parliamentary practitioners and civil society organizations working on gender equality issues — in transforming these institutions into gender-sensitive parliaments.
The event is organized to launch this new ODIHR publication. It will also provide a platform for sharing best practices, lessons learned and innovations on how national parliaments mainstream gender equality in thier composition, structures, operations, working methods and daily work, to be able to achieve gender-responsive policy outcomes.
This event will take place on Wednesday 30 March, from 10:00 to 12:00 (CET).
