Typologies and Measurements of Electoral Malpractice

Show Summary Details


This chapter develops the general typology of electoral malpractice sketched in Chapter 1, and then considers a range of research strategies and data sources that can profitably be used to analyse malpractice of the types identified. In this way, the chapter provides the descriptive basis for the theoretical expectations to be elaborated in Chapter 3. The chapter has three principal sections: the first section sketches a typology of electoral malpractice; research strategies and data sources for the study of electoral malpractice are considered in the second section; and the last major section of the chapter is devoted to a description of a new dataset called the Index of Electoral Malpractice.
