Call for Papers

Subject Fields:

The central practice of democracy is representative government. The constitution of the representative government is usually by appointment or election; aimed at the representation of interests (gender, classes, party, etc.) and with the intention of promoting contributions to the development of the democratic state. Since recently, while there are arguments about the issue of gender, the reality is that the male gender predominates governmental institutions, and this has reflected in the low representation of women in political positions such as the legislative and executive arms of government. Against this background, the call for paper is aimed at soliciting for studies that theoretically and practically address the issue of gender in governance and democracy.


The sub-theme for the paper includes, but not limited to the under-listed:

Gender and Security

Gender in politics
