Review into identifying barriers and incentives to running for election to the National Assembly for Wales

In its strategy report for 2016-2021 the Remuneration Board outlined that one of its main priorities is to explore whether there are issues it can address within its remit to attract citizens from a broad range of demographics across Wales to stand for election to the Assembly. The Wales Governance Centre was successful in an open tendering process to undertake the review.


The report, Unpacking Diversity: Barriers and incentives to standing for election to the National Assembly for Wales, and a summary report were published on 5 July. The Board agreed to consider the issues raised in the report during the remainder of its term in office.
