Resumen

 

En las elecciones municipales celebradas en Turquía en marzo de 2014 fueron elegidas un número récord de mujeres como alcaldesas y concejalas, en gran parte debido a la estructura de co-liderazgo de género implementada por el partido pro-kurdo HDP en todos sus cargos internos e institucionales. El presente artículo analiza desde la perspectiva de la política contenciosa y de las políticas de escala si el surgimiento de las mujeres co-alcaldesas en el sudeste de Turquía ha logrado introducir en la agenda política nacional el debate sobre el establecimiento de medidas enfocadas a lograr una representación más paritaria entre géneros.

The increasing role of women in the local governments of Turkey’s Southeast and its influence on the national debate over parity

Abstract

In the last municipal elections held in Turkey in March 2014, a record number of women were elected both as mayors and councilors at the town halls. This is largely the result of a gender-based co-leadership structure implemented by the pro-Kurdish party HDP in all internal and institutional positions. The present article analyzes, from the perspective of contentious politics and the politics of scale, whether the emergence of women co-mayors in southeast Turkey has successfully introduced in the national political agenda the debate on taking concrete measures in order to reach a gender parity of representation.

 Keywords: Kurdish feminism, representation, political agenda, politics of scale, contentious politics
