Centre for Advancement of Women in Politics
Director: Prof Yvonne Galligan
We aim to foster an appreciation of women's contribution to politics, government and public decision making in the UK and Ireland.
We consider women's political participation as having two important dimensions - the proportion of women in decision making and the inclusion of women's perspectives in government policies and programmes.
