Report - Lessons Learned Workshop on the Nominated Seats for Women in the Papua New Guinea Legislature
In order to redress the under-representation of women in PNG's Parliament, a strategy to move ahead on temporary
special measures was put in place following the 2007 UNDP Diagnostic for Women and Elections. The Minister for Community Development, Dame Carol Kidu put forward to Cabinet a submission to nominate three women in accordance with the PNG Constitution. This Report presents a summary of the evaluation of this strategy conducted at the ‘Lessons Learned’ workshop to examine processes, mechanisms and procedures that had been adopted and thereby provide a guide for other regional countries considering special measures for women’s parliamentary representation.
