Modern political party management: What can be learned from international practices?

Catrina Schläger and Judith Christ (eds.); Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, Shanghai, February 2014

How do political parties react to social changes? How and to what extent can party members be included in intra-party decision-making? In what way do parties deal with internal conflicts? How can corruption be dealt with and prevented within a party?

These and many other questions arise in relation to political party management, the overall organizational aspect of political parties. Within this publication, scholars from nine different countries try to answer these questions and present their findings on a wide range of parties that were chosen regarding their significance for the national policy making process - not necessarily because they serve as a shining example. Examples include the German Social Democratic Party, the Indian Congress Party, United Russia, Japan's LDP and the Chinese Communist Party.
