University of Edinburgh

U. of Edinburgh School of Law Working Paper No. 22
IMMIGRATION AND THE IRISH EXPERIENCE OF EUROPEAN AND GLOBAL SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION, B. Fanning, R. Munck, eds., Ashgate, London, 2010/11
As a contribution to a collection focusing on immigration in Ireland, this paper provides the broader EU political and legal context to issues of political participation of non-citizens in domestic elections. The paper surveys both the EU electoral rights themselves, under the EU Treaties, and also the intersection between these rights and national political practices which grant, or deny, political participation rights to all migrants, regardless of whether they are EU citizens or third country nationals.
