Non-Universal Franchise? Eligibility and Access to Voting Rights in Transnational Contexts
The one-day international conference, ‘Non-universal franchise? Eligibility and access to voting rights in transnational contexts’, has explored contemporary challenges arising in the relationships between citizenship, electoral rights and democratic legitimacy. Papers presented have offered comparative and normative perspectives on eligibility to electoral rights, access to the ballot, or both. The workshop has concluded with a book presentation and discussion of Ruvi Ziegler’s ‘Voting Rights of Refugees’ (Cambridge University Press, 2017). The conference was hosted at the EUI by the Global Citizenship Observatory (GLOBALCIT).
Convenors: Professor Rainer Bauböck (EUI), Dr. Derek Hutcheson (Malmö), Dr. Ruvi Ziegler (Reading).
