''Can the women's parliamentary representation reduces corruption and informal sector in Africa? Empirical analysis''
( 2020, Vol. 40 No.1 )
The purpose of this work is to contribute to literature by showing explicitly the impact of women's promotion policies on the reduction of the level of corruption and informal activities. For this goal to be achieved, data from 25 African countries obtained from different sources will be empirically analyzed (ICRG, Medina and Schneider2018). These data were tested according to a linear regression model and the results obtained established a negative relation between the change in the proportion of women parliamentarians, the level of corruption and the size of the informal sector.
Keywords: Corruption, Informal sector, Women parliamentarians.
