Promoting inclusive parliaments: The representation of minorities and indigenous peoples in parliaments - January 15th Deadline

IPU and UNDP are undertaking a project which aims to understand and promote the effective representation of minorities and indigenous peoples in parliament. The objectives of the project are:
  • Increase knowledge on the representation of minorities and indigenous peoples in parliament
  • Provide tools for parliaments and other stakeholders on promoting inclusive parliaments
  • Build capacity to advocate for more inclusive parliaments

The project is funded by the Canadian International Development Agency. It began in June 2008 and will end in December 2010. The project budget is managed by the IPU.
A number of project activities have been completed; others are underway and require finalization; still others have not yet begun. IPU is seeking to engage a Consultant to lead the implementation of the project activities in the 2010 workplan.
