The project will investigate the way in which constitutions can work to shape democratic policies and politics that are more equal and inclusive from a gender perspective. It will consider the role of gender-sensitive approaches to constitutional drafting, as well as the legal and political institutional structures that help promote the effective implementation of constitutional commitments to gender equality and justice. To do so, it will engage cutting edge approaches in comparative constitutional law and politics, and combine gender theory and either large-n or small-n empirical work. It will contribute to a broader research-agenda on the intersection of law, politics and gender.
