The State and Civil Society

Format: Academic Monograph
Media: Hardback
PublisherCode: 9780198758587
Publisher: OUP Oxford

State regulation of civil society is expanding yet widely contested. Still, we know surprisingly little about why long-lived democracies adopt more or less constraining legal approaches in this sphere. Meanwhile, the regulatory frameworks applicable to interest groups, parties, and public benefit organizations as organizations have undergone significant change in many democracies. This book contains up-to-date analyses of how interest groups, political parties, and public benefit organizations are legally regulated in 19 democracies. It includes new measurements of legal constraints in multiple areas of civil society regulation (e.g. party finance law, third party regulation, fundraising, and lobby regulation) including an overall 'Legal Regulation Index' capturing legal constraints of 19 national legal frameworks. Finally, it develops and empirically examines a new interdisciplinary theory on why democracies adopt permissive or constraining regulation of civil society organizations
