This panel focuses on the patterns of political participation of immigrant-origin citizens in Europe and beyond. In doing so, the panel adopts a transnational perspective thus aiming to discuss the changing nature of migrants’ political behaviour in home and host country elections. The papers included in this panel examine: a) the effect of the institutional framework in origin and destination countries on shaping the active engagement of non-national/transnational voters; b) the direct consequences of policies of migrant enfranchisement on levels of political participation among the immigrant-origin electorate; c) new modes of diaspora activism; and d) the politicisation of immigration and migrants’ integration.
