The journal  International Political Science Review has published an Editor’s Choice issue on Gender and Political Institutions  which is now avImageailable on Open Access [click here] .  This brings together in one collection significant contributions on gendering political institutions, by feminist institutionalist scholars.

It leads with the 2010 review essay by Fiona Mackay (Edinburgh), Meryl Kenny (Leicester) and Louise Chappell (UNSW)  – leading members of the Feminism and Institutionalism International Network (FIIN)-  New Institutionalism Through a Gender Lens: Towards a Feminist Institutionalism? International Political Science Review/ Revue internationale de science pol 2010 31:573-588

The Editor’s Choice issue also includes previously published articles by other FIIN contributors Marian Sawer (ANU), Mona Lena Krook (Rutgers), Johanna Kantola (Helsinki) and their collaborators (See full contents list below).

The Editor’s foreword  highlights the influence of FIIN on recent directions in the study of gender and political institutions:

” [The] Feminism and Institutionalism International Network (FIIN) based in Edinburgh has fostered a wealth of new scholarship seeking to identify the gender-specific effects of norms perpetuated within institutions. Even new institutions, designed to be more gender-inclusive, may be overwhelmed by the dynamics of older institutional cultures within which they are nested or by new philosophies of governance.”
