Abstract

There is a growing trend for developing democracies to attempt to shape their party systems by regulating the way parties can form, organize and behave. This policy brief surveys attempts at party regulation and considers how to promote stable, non-sectarian political parties — an essential component of democracy — whilst also allowing free political expression and minority representation.
