Reserch Question

How does the absence of rule of law and democratic institutions contribute to gender inequality in developing countries, and what measures can be taken to address these challenges?


This research aims to examine the relationship between the absence of rule of law and democratic institutions and gender inequality in developing countries. It seeks to understand how the lack of legal and political frameworks that promote gender equality can perpetuate discriminatory practices and unequal access to rights and opportunities for women and other marginalised groups. The research explores case studies of successful initiatives to promote gender equality in contexts where rule of law and democracy are weak or absent. The findings of this research can inform policy recommendations and strategies for promoting gender equality in developing countries.
