Law Library: News & Events:

Join foreign law specialist, Ruth Levush, for our newest entry in the Foreign and Comparative Law Webinar Series, World Trends in Elections and Campaign Financing Regulation. This webinar will discuss global developments in election and campaign finance in the last twelve months, both before and during the pandemic. While some developments in these areas reflect the impact of COVID-19 on electoral systems, others may be seen in the context of specific challenges in the countries surveyed, not necessarily related to the pandemic. Among the topics that will be covered are: structural changes to governmental and electoral systems; voting access; eligibility for office; term of office; gender representation; campaign advertising; campaign finance; election monitoring; penalties for election related violations; and election scheduling.
