The Development Of Left-wing and Right-wing Parties In Post-Communist Central and Eastern Europe

Sebastian Kim

The logic that more women in parliament means better legislative considerations for gender equality has led more than 84 countries to adopt gender quotas to improve the selection of female candidates running for office (Tripp & Kang 2007).

Aarti Malhotra

Historical archives have been an integral part of looking back and understanding the political past for centuries, but whether archives have the potential to shape the political present is unclear.

In an increasingly digitised world, it is no understatement that data is the highest-valued currency. If data is power, then archives stand unbowed. Still, a question lingers: are archives only powerful from a purely material approach or do they have considerable political implications as well? This paper […]
