Study of can­di­dates and polit­i­cal par­ties in the 2014 Euro­pean Par­lia­ment elec­tions from a gen­der perspective

This study explores the results of the 2014 Euro­pean Par­lia­ment elec­tions in terms of gen­der bal­ance of MEPs. The study uses case stud­ies and sta­tis­ti­cal analy­ses of the elec­tion results to estab­lish the main bar­ri­ers to women being elected. The fac­tors explored include the type of elec­toral sys­tem used, polit­i­cal par­ties’ can­di­date list selec­tion processes and strate­gies used by women polit­i­cal can­di­dates. The study presents rec­om­men­da­tions for improv­ing gen­der bal­ance in the Euro­pean Parliament
