'Unpacking Diversity' - report looks at barriers to standing as candidate for Welsh Assembly

As part of a drive to make the Welsh Assembly Government more representative of the community it serves, Cardiff University's Wales Governance Centre has produced a report: 'Unpacking diversity: Barriers and incentives to standing for election to the National Assembly for Wales'.

The report considers what prevents people from a wider range of backgrounds (including those with a disability) from standing in the Assembly Election and what would make the job of an Assembly Member more attractive. It makes a range of recommendations, including the establishment of an 'access to politics' fund to help with the additional costs of disability, and provision of accessible information.
