Bringing women in politics together globally

On April 10, 2006, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA) announced a partnership to create the International Knowledge Network of Women in Politics: “iKNOW Politics.”

iKNOW Politics aims to increase women’s participation and effectiveness in political life. For women engaged in politics around the world, the Network will offer a “one-stop shop,” providing access to critical resources and expertise, stimulating dialogue and disseminating knowledge on women’s political participation.

“Our goal is to offer access to an impressive database of combined resources and expertise from four organizations and to cultivate an inspiring international network of women,” stated Ms. Randi Davis, former Senior Parliamentary Development Advisor, Democratic Governance Group (DDG) of the UNDP.

Whether you are an elected official, candidate, researcher, student or practitioner, iKNOW Politics will offer a structured way of making contacts, collaborating and learning about political developments and events. Via web-based technology, it will bring together women like you from all over the world.

Look forward to the official launch of iKNOW Politics in September 2006.
