Electoral integrity and political regimes : actors, strategies and consequences
Title: Electoral integrity and political regimes : actors, strategies and consequences
Citation: Abingdon ; New York : Routledge, 2017
Following a normative approach that suggests international norms and standards for elections apply universally, regardless of regime type or cultural context, this book examines the challenges to electoral integrity, the actors involved, and the consequences of electoral malpractice and poor electoral integrity that vary by regime type. It bridges the literature on electoral integrity with that of political regime types.
