The project will produce quantitative data on the relationship between women’s economic and political empowerment in post-conflict Colombia. It will enable researchers and policy makers to have a greater understanding of the mechanisms that can relate the economic empowerment of women with more political representation at local level in Colombia. Based on data analysis and stakeholder workshops, the project will produce a new data set on municipal-level land allocations to women, an academic publication and a policy paper.
