Representative bureaucracy: a typology of normative institutional strategies for the representation of women

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In public service institutions occupational gender segregation persists. These institutions are often gendered with predominantly masculine organisational cultures. The lack of passive and active representation of women has implications for public policy outcomes. This paper suggests a normative typology of the passive and active representation of women in bureaucracies, vis-á-vis institutional strategies to address the under-representation of women.
