- ItemWomen After War: A Comparative Analysis of the Gender Quota Trend in the Post- Conflict Contexts of Uganda, Sierra Leone, and Tunisia(2017) Abrahams, Hannah; Wing, Susanna D.In Africa there is a recent trend of civil conflict correlated with a significant increase in women’s representation in legislative bodies. One explanation for this substantial increase is the trend of adopting gender quota policies shortly after these civil conflicts have ended. However, not every African nation that endured a civil conflict adopted a gender quota policy. The aim of this thesis is to examine why some post-conflict African states follow the trend of gender quota policies, and some do not. I build a comparative case study analysis of Uganda, Sierra Leone, and Tunisia to address this research question.
