Benchmark on Diversity in Political Parties

Divpol logoIn the framework of the 2011-2012 Migrant Voices project, MPG developed a benchmarking tool on diversity in political parties. This tool is now being used and refined in a project on Diversity in Political Parties’ Programmes, Organisation and Representation (DivPol), funded by the European Integration Fund.

The benchmark contains six themes to be mainstreamed across political parties’ diversity initiatives: Voters; Members; Candidates; Leaders; Employees; and Suppliers.

It allows political parties to measure the level of performance from basic to lower intermediateupper intermediate and advanced and to evaluate their efforts to integrate persons with a migrant background into their ranks and formulate detailed plans to mainstream diversity in their party.
