In an age of corruption, sleaze and scandal associated with financial crisis and economic downturn across the globe, citizens want more transparency and accountability in politics.
Available in paperback due to popular demand, this book examines a principal means by which this can be achieved: the regulation of lobbyists.
It provides innovative insights into lobbying regulations across four continents - North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
What are these regulations about? What are the differences across the continents? How effective are the rules? How have they changed the lobbying profession? Using qualitative and quantitative analyses, the book compares and contrasts regulatory laws in the US, Canada, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Hungary, the EU, Taiwan and Australia. -- .
