The one-day international conference, ‘Non-universal franchise? Eligibility and access to voting rights in transnational contexts’, will explore contemporary challenges arising in the relationships between citizenship, electoral rights and democratic legitimacy. Papers presented will offer comparative and normative perspectives on eligibility to electoral rights, access to the ballot, or both. The workshop will conclude with a book presentation and discussion of Ruvi Ziegler’s ‘Voting Rights of Refugees’ (Cambridge University Press, 2017). The conference will be hosted at the EUI by the Global Citizenship Observatory (GLOBALCIT).

Convenors: Professor Rainer Bauböck (EUI), Dr. Derek Hutcheson (Malmö), Dr. Ruvi Ziegler (Reading).
