Northern Ireland political transparency research


We ran research on public attitudes towards the transparency of political party and campaigner finance in Northern Ireland. This included views on the publication of information about donations and loans made between 2014 and 2017.

The research, carried out by Ipsos Mori, is based on responses from a series of online focus groups conducted across Northern Ireland. Respondents were asked questions about their awareness of, and attitudes towards, the financing of political parties, as well as the arrangements for reporting and publishing such information, and how confident they were in the transparency of that regime.
