Case studies

This section contains case studies of some issues-based campaigns.

The case studies give detailed assessments of the purpose test for each campaign, and whether or not it was made available to the public.

These assessments may provide a model for how to assess your own campaign activities.

For more details on what is regulated spending, please read our non-party campaigner guidance.

Thanks to campaigners and caveat

Our thanks to the campaigners whose campaigns we have used for these case studies.

The assessments in the case studies are our assessments, as the regulator, of how the law applied to these particular cases, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the campaigners involved.
