    Abstract

    This paper explores issues of policy framing in an era of multi-level governance, focusing on what is an underresearched arena at the European level: the Council of Europe. Adopting a primarily historical institutional approach, it investigates the processes through which the politics of presence came to be constructed in terms of "parity-democracy" and women's democratic citizenship rights through the Council of Europe in the late 1980s and 1990s and notes the usages which have subsequently been made of this claim to parity in France and within the governance arena of the EU.
