bandiar-article-logo

Five national (France, Italy, Polen, Spain and Sweden) SWOT-analysis’ have been carried out by each participating partner in the BANDIAR-project. These will also result in a common SWOT report from the whole project, elaborated by BalticFem.

 

SWOT-model for the BANDIAR-project

Each participating partner in BANDIAR shall carry out a so called SWOT analysis in their respective country. The national SWOT should be presented according to the same model on 2-5 pages and Baltic Fem will compile all contributions into a common report. These SWOTs should give the project a point of departure in terms of women’s participation in political life in each country and how to address the debate in the citizen’s panel to be carried out. SWOT analysis is a useful tool in the assessment of the gender dimension in different fields of action.

SWOT analysis is a strategic planning tool used to describe and evaluate the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats in a project, a situation, an organisation etc. requiring a decision in pursuit of an objective. Strengths and Weaknesses are often related to internal factors, whilst Opportunities and Threats are related to external factors.

The SWOT analysis starts with defining a desired end, state or objective and in the case of BANDIAR project that are: Increased participation of women’s in political life and encourage women to participate and vote in the elections to the European Parliament. In the BANDIAR project the aim of the SWOT is to identify the key internal and external factors that are important for achieving these objectives.

A SWOT is a way of obtaining information from different actors that could contribute and in the case of BANDIAR this could be for example researchers, gender equality experts and representatives from women’s NGOs. A SWOT grid invites the participants to illuminate their past experience and both the look into the past (review) and look ahead into the future (anticipation).

Each partner in BANDIAR project should contact relevant actors in their respective country to fulfil the SWOT grid below. In it is essential in these contacts to describe the BANDIAR project and secure that all participants has a clear picture of the objectives before fulfilling the grid. The grid should always be tackled in the following order: (1) Strengths, (2) Weaknesses, (3) Opportunities and (4) Threats.
