Continuing TJI’s mission of research on matters of gender, equality and inclusion in constitutional debates, we are pleased to share this new report by Prof Fidelma Ashe based on her research with Eilish Rooney and Dr Joanna McMinn, Gendering Constitutional Conversations, (based on projects funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Joseph Rowntree).

The report discusses the aims, methodology and findings from two distinct but intersecting research projects funded by the Department for Foreign Affairs, Dublin (Gendering Cross-Border Debates on the Question of Irish Unification) and the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust (Gendering Constitutional Conversations and Design in Northern Ireland). The report's findings identify barriers to women's inclusion in constitutional debate and assesses pathways to facilitate the inclusion of women in discussing and imagining constitutional futures.
