Electoral Law in Ireland: The Legal Regulation of the Irish Political Process guides the reader through the labyrinthine regulation of electoral law in Ireland from the creation and registration of parties, through to administrative issues with funding, lobbying, political advertising through to issues regarding ethical aspects of political life such as Standards and Ethics in Public Office.

Since the foundation of the State there have been 61 acts and 287 statutory instruments dealing with the regulation of political activities in Ireland. The legislation deals with everything from creating a party, to donations through to the regulation of elections and referendums. A comprehensive understanding of this complex legislation is vital to those working in politics and to those who wish to gain greater understanding of political regulation in Ireland.

This book also deals with the major challenges and issues such as lobbying regulation and political advertising concerns.
