Women in local politics in Europe

The information presented in this document has been compiled by the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) in 2009.

The study – based on research carried out by the national associations from 34 countries of CEMR’s membership – gathers information and figures on women in local politics in Europe: legislation regarding women quotas, number of women members in municipal councils, number of women in the municipal executives, percentage of women mayors, etc.

An up-dated version of this study is currently being drafted and will be soon available.
