Synopsis
Utilizing an intersectional-inspired perspective I examine candidate recruitment and selection procedures within 12 Scandinavian political parties across Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. I look at all stages of candidate recruitment and selection to examine both supply and demand-side factors that may affect the representation of young women in parliaments. I utilized a mixed method approach including qualitative and quantitative network analysis.
