Published just days after the election, these short pieces cover a wide-variety of interconnected themes, including strategic communication, mediatization, opinion research, electioneering, political management, public policy, polling, and e-politics, and explain how Canadian democracy has been affected. The authors provide authoritative analyses of the campaigns and election outcome to bring readers original ways of understanding the election.
These vibrant, informed pieces are written for journalists, researchers, pundits, students, and engaged citizens. They also provide a wealth of ideas for more in-depth investigation and writing on the election, Canadian politics, and democracy.
The open-access pdf was made available here on Monday, November 9th, 2015. Samara Canada is also hosting each of the pieces, beginning on November 9th, as a series on their blog at www.samaracanada.com.Canadian Election Analysis 2015: Communication, Strategy, and Democracy offers timely and insightful reflections on the 2015 Canadian Federal Election from Canada's leading academics and political commentators.
