Community and Integrated Development

Women In Politics & Community Representation


This emancipatory research project was commissioned by Mayo County Council in collaboration with Mayo North East & South West Mayo Development Company to identify barriers experienced by women when engaging in the political system at local, community, county and national level in the country. A specific objective was to explore the motivators for women to become involved and their experience of involvement. Another objective was to explore the recommendations given by the women to address any identified challenges and by so doing to contribute to the body of knowledge for policy makers and local politics in Mayo and beyond.
