Convened by Dr Isabelle Hertner (Department of European and International Studies) and Dr Elizabeth Ralph-Morrow (Department of Political Economy)

Women are under-represented in politics across the world. Despite the introduction of gender quota and other measures of positive discrimination, women remain a minority inside political parties, parliaments, and governments. In particular, parties and social movements on the radical right side of the political spectrum are dominated by men. Many radical right parties and movements perceive ‘traditional’ notions of masculinity to be under threat from feminism.
In this one-day work workshop, we will give King’s researchers and a number of invited guests the opportunity to present their research on gender in the area of comparative politics. The aim is to bring together a small, friendly, but critical and constructive group of experts who will comment on each other’s work in progress, such as papers and grant proposals. In addition to the academic panels, we will organise a roundtable on women and political science.
