Funding of Political Parties and Election Campaigns (A Handbook on Political Finance)

International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance

The role of money in politics is arguably the biggest threat to democracy worldwide today. This threat is clear across all continents—from huge corporate campaign donations in the United States and drug money seeping into politics in Latin America, to corruption scandals throughout Asia and Europe. Women candidates in particular suffer disproportionately from lack of access to campaign finance. This handbook addresses these and other problems of money in politics by analyzing political finance regulations around the world and providing guidance for reform.
