How to enfranchise second country nationals?: Test the options for best fit, easiest adoption and lowest costs
The proposal of this ECI by Philippe Cayla and Catriona Seth is a welcome initiative addressing a problem that has already been highlighted by the European Commission, namely, that some ‘second country nationals’ (SCNs) lose their entitlement to vote in the national elections of their state of nationality without having acquired the right to vote at this level in their state of residence. This chapter critically considers a number of possible rules for resolving the legitimacy deficit identified. It tests them against three criteria: best fit, easiest adoption and lowest costs.

Abstract

The proposal of this ECI by Philippe Cayla and Catriona Seth is a welcome initiative addressing a problem that has already been highlighted by the European Commission, namely, that some ‘second country nationals’ (SCNs) lose their entitlement to vote in the national elections of their state of nationality without having acquired the right to vote at this level in their state of residence. This chapter critically considers a number of possible rules for resolving the legitimacy deficit identified. It tests them against three criteria: best fit, easiest adoption and lowest costs.
