Abstract

In recent years, the importance of professional PR in politics has risen dramatically. But in contrast with the development of business PR, political PR lags behind, especially in three key areas: integrated communication, internal communication and evaluation of communication success. Although the improvements in business PR cannot be transferred directly into the non-profit sector, lessons can certainly be learnt.
