The APSA MENA Workshop is a professional development and networking opportunity for early-career scholars from the Arab MENA region. This year’s fellows are conducting research on issues related to women and gender within the MENA region, and focuses the discussions and research on three main sub-themes. This first theme examines women’s representation in the political sphere such as legislatures, local government, the executive, and the judiciary. A second theme looks at legal reform and gender equality as related to women’s rights reforms and women’s economic empowerment. The third theme debates women’s movements and political change as related to public opinion and domestic politics as well as international influences.
