The State of Political Finance Regulations in Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States

Overview and Use Case

This paper examines how party political finance rules in Canada, United Kingdom and United States have changed in the past five years. All three countries use funding systems in which private money continues to play an important role compared to public subsidies for political parties. Because all three political finance systems are heavily dependent on donations, their regulatory regimes put a lot of emphasis on answering questions about who can give donations and how it should be spent. The paper looks into the changing landscape since 2010 of political finance reforms, and provides certain conclusions and recommendations.
