Overcoming Political Exclusion: Strategies for marginalized groups to successfully engage in political decision-making

This publication, published in 2013 by the International Institute for Electoral Assistance and Democracy, identifies the obstacles preventing marginalized people from taking active part in customary and democratic decision-making. It highlights strategies for managing transition from political exclusion to inclusion and identifies lessons that could be adopted by marginalized groups. Drawing on experience from 38 case studies, the publication describes how different marginalized groups have worked to overcome barriers to their participation in political decision-making.
