A healthy democracy relies on a healthy electoral system. Are the ways we run elections and political parties adapting to contemporary challenges and learning from international experience? Drawing together leading political scientists and legal scholars, Electoral Democracy examines pressing debates about the regulation of political finance, parties and representation in Australia. It does so by testing the system and reform proposals against three fundamental-and sometimes conflicting-values- political equality, liberty and integrity. This book will inform and provoke all who take part in and care about Australia's electoral democracy.
