Abstract

This study examines the relationship between gender inequality and political and social integration, a critical links exist between economic, social and political variables in the quest to reach out of the reasons behind gender inequality for all citizens. This study suggests that political and social integration may increase the gender inequality positively or negatively. To test the proposed claims we need scientific analysis to produce meaningful results and significance. And here we develop our research question which is: how does political and social integration effects gender inequality?


Quantative data which I use in this paper comes from The Quality of Government (QoG) based on the cross-sectional data. The results covers 194 countries, the conceptualization and operationalization used in study on the impact of gender inequality will be reviewed. And the theoretical framework usually used to study peace operations contributions in quantitative research will also be summarized. Moreover, the main findings using codebook capturing results of dependent and independent variables will be presented, including the results of control variables influences.
