Pippa Norris and colleagues at the Electoral Integrity Project have just published a new book on Advancing Electoral Integrity. The book is formed from a workshop at Harvard University last year. I have a chapter in the book that aims to do a number of things:
- Claims that electoral management is an often overlooked way in which elections can go wrong
- Provide a framework for assessing electoral management
- Explain why achieving high quality electoral management has become so difficult in established democracies like Britain.
Even I don’t convince you about electoral management, the rest of the book is superb and a must buy for those interested in elections and democracy.
I am part of a team organising a conference evaluating British Labour party leaders. Speakers including the leading biographers and political commentators on each leader. For more information, please see: http://politicalleadership.org/events/labour-party-leaders/
