Accountability Via Central Database Regimes In The Context Of NSW Political Donations
Source: Macquarie University
The authors examine the extent to which the NSW political finance disclosure regime promotes accountability in order to both improve this case as well as understand how accountability might be realised through a Central Database Regime (CDR). A CDR is system in which organizations report information to a central agency, which then ensures that the information is accessible in a publically-available database. This paper also outlines the benefits and limitations of using CDRs as accountability mechanisms.
