Supporting Vietnamese women in politics

This research will seek to address the systematic and persistent political underrepresentation of women in all branches of Vietnam's political system.

Past project

In Vietnam, women hold less than 10% of membership in political parties and even fewer numbers in cabinet.

This collaborative project between Vietnam's Center for Gender Studies and Women's Leadership (GeLead) and the Australian Human Rights Institute will work to strengthen GeLead's research capacity in order to develop a wide range of training curricula for various leadership training courses and recommendations to the leaders of the Party and the State of Vietnam for gender-sensitive policies.

This research will seek to address the systematic and persistent political underrepresentation of women in all political branches, by identifying explicit and implicit barriers to women's greater political participation.
