During the seminar 'Migrant women in European Politics' the under-representation of Women and, especially, migrant women in politics will be discussed. Why is it that in most national parliaments in Europe there are so few migrant women? What does it mean for migrant woman to be a politician? Do they suffer from both their sex as well as their ethnicity in trying to take a part in the governments of their countries? The debate will take place amongst Naima Azough, Karen Celis, Rainbow Murray and Karen Schönwalder.

This seminar was organised in collaboration with the research group 'Challenges to Democratic Representation', the Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies (IMES), the Amsterdam Research Centre on Gender and Sexuality (ARC-GS) of the UvA and the Association for Political Science (VPW).
