The JUSTINT team presented research by Denisa Kostovicova, Tolga Sinmazdemir, Lana Bilalova and Vesna Popovski on women’s participation in transitional justice debates in parliaments at a session organised by the Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy (NIMD) and their global network of partners. A representative from Akina Mama wa Afrika (AMwA) from Uganda, that works with women political leaders to support them to effectively influence political decision-making, reflected on implications for practice of the JUSTINT team’s research and its insights. These insights informed ideas on how to support women to gain more influence in political dialogues and politics, and on developing an understanding of the notion of feminist leadership. The meeting was attended by NIMD’s partners from Burkina Faso, Kenya, Guatemala, Colombia, Myanmar, and others.
