The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) and the Parliament of Gabon are organizing a Regional Seminar for French-speaking African Parliaments on Gender-sensitive Parliaments. The Seminar will take place in Libreville from 13 to 15 June 2013 as part of activities to follow-up the publication in 2011 of an IPU report entitled Gender-sensitive Parliaments – a Global Review of Good Practice and the Plan of Action for Gender-sensitive Parliaments, adopted by the 127th IPU Assembly.

The Seminar will provide a forum for parliamentarians from the region to exchange their views and experiences on how parliaments respond to the expectations and interests of men and women members in their structures, mechanisms and proceedings and generally in the way they function.



Practical and substantive documents related to the event are available only in French,
which is the only working language for this particular event.
