About Our Work
In July 2015, we launched the Campaign Finance Indicators dataset, a unique repository of rich, comparative country level data assessing the transparency and effectiveness of political finance regimes in countries across the world. Working with more than 110 political finance experts from academia, journalism, and civil society in 54 countries, Global Integrity examined both the legislation on the books to regulate political finance, and the way those enforcement mechanisms played out in practice. By measuring the scope of legal frameworks and assessing on-the ground realities of political finance, the Campaign Finance indicators deliver detailed, comprehensive scorecards on the role of money in politics, especially during campaigns.
Global Integrity is dedicated to producing high quality data and ensuring that it is as useful as possible to local stakeholders — both inside and outside of government around the world. If you have questions, comments, or thoughts please contact us at email@example.com
