ABSTRACT. The purpose of this article is to gain a deeper understanding of the gendered performance of formal and informal institutions, the link between gender, institutions and candidate selection, and the gendered features of institutional dynamics. I am specifically interested in how previous research investigated the gendered character of access to political office, political parties as gendered institutions, and the gendering of the formal and informal regulations that comprise institutions. The theory that I shall seek to elaborate here puts considerable emphasis on the function of present institutions of candidate selection, the latter’s arrangements and gendered effects of various political parties, and the role of gender in configuring institutional content and consequences.

Keywords: feminist institutionalism; formal; informal; gender; candidate selection
