Women – Politics – Equal Oportunities. Prospects for Gender Equality Politics in Central and Eastern Europe
This study is the result of a research project entitled »Prospects for Gender Equality Politics in Central and Eastern Europe – Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia.« The point of departure for this study was the observation that despite ten years of transition, most post-socialist CEE countries have introduced virtually no mechanisms for the promotion of gender equality and have made no serious attempts to increase the participation of women in politics.
