Gendered electoral financing 
The project analyzes the form, causes and particularly the consequences of gendered electoral financing focusing specifically on how such schemes - separate from or in conjunction with gender quotas - interact with electoral processes and institutions that tend to be gendered. It will do this through country-specific case studies and two-paired analysis of France, Malawi Kenya and the United Kingdom.
