Migration in West and North Africa and across the Mediterranean - Chapter 34
Diffusion and practice of external voting in North and West Africa
Also available in:
This chapter discusses the diffusion of external voting in North and West Africa since the early 1990s, and diaspora participation in elections in countries of origin. It starts by examining the idea that the spread of external voting is attributable solely to the emergence of diaspora policies and political liberalization processes. It then looks at the influence of citizens abroad on elections by analysing their turnout and political preferences.
