Project Details


This project aims to investigate how political parties in parliamentary democracies are responding to the digital and field revolutions in campaigning. The importance political parties are attaching to these modes of campaigning poses challenges for electoral regulators as well as for scholars of political parties trying to understand party organisation. Using six case studies from three parliamentary democracies, the expected outcome of this project is an innovative account of the implications of these changes for political parties and liberal democracy. This will increase scholarly understanding of political parties and campaigning and can also inform the work of electoral regulators.
