Women in politics and the public sector in Tanzania (GSDRC Helpdesk Research Report 1286)

A literature review on the engagement of women in politics and the public sector in Tanzania

Abstract

Query

Can you do a literature review on the engagement of women in politics and the public sector in Tanzania?

Overview

This report provides an overview of recent literature on women in politics and the public sector in Tanzania. The body of literature on women’s engagement in politics in Tanzania is relatively small, consisting of a mixture of journal articles and government and NGO reports. The studies discussed in this review are predominantly empirical. In-depth analysis of women’s political engagement is very limited.

There is very little literature on women’s engagement in the public sector in Tanzania. The literature that has been uncovered while undertaking the research for this report tends to focus on broader gender issues in Tanzania, only briefly touching upon women’s engagement in the public sector. No recent studies dealing exclusively with women in the public sector in Tanzania were found. This report therefore identifies a significant gap in the literature.
