Women's Political Representation in Post-Soviet Republics (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to analyse and systematically describe the spatial variance of women's political representation in national parliaments of post-Soviet republics. The study aims to explain the spatial variance through scrutinizing theoretical explanation factors of women's political representation. The main question that this study revolves around is:

 

  1. How can the spatial variance of women's political representation in national parliaments of post-Soviet states be explained?

 

The essay uses a statistical and comparative method to answer the question. The study is of a quantitative nature and uses both an explorative and a descriptive approach. The statistical analysis used in this study is bivariate analysis and linear regression analysis.

 

The result indicates that there is a great variance in the number of female parliamentarians between the post-Soviet countries. It is slightly higher for the group of post-Soviet countries located within Europe. The result implies that traditional theoretical explanation models cannot entirely be adapted to post-Soviet republics. In this study we found positive correlation between the number of female parliamentarians and majority electoral system and social-economic development. Furthermore, negative correlation was found between gender quotas and democratic level.
