This panel discusses the evolution of policies and practices of immigrant political engagement over time and across countries. In doing so, it explores not only the dimension of migrants’ enfranchisement from a transnational perspective, but also their pathways of access to electoral politics via naturalization and/or nomination of immigrant-origin candidates in home and host country elections. Furthermore, the papers included in this panel also discuss the specific configuration of institutional, political, and societal factors that may constrain migrants’ active involvement in the political arena.
