In this article, I start by looking at the historical origin of external voting in an attempt to define the practice as a set of administrative procedures. However, looking at its speedy global development, I argue that external voting is taking a different meaning for both sending and receiving societies in the era of globalization. Drawing on different examples from Europe, Latin America and Africa, and comparing the early development of external voting legislations with contemporary processes that lead to the enfranchisement of citizens abroad, I argue that the enfranchisement of citizens abroad is now part of a larger state strategy of developing external citizenship in order to capture what some scholars call the “diaspora resource”. For receiving states, I show through two case studies that the development of foreign electoral campaigns on their territory still triggers classic Westphalian fears of dual loyalties of immigrants. Nonetheless, I show that under specific circumstances, external voting can also be perceived by receiving states an opportunity to capture the votes of citizens enfranchised in both the sending and receiving societies.

Today, a large majority of states allow at least some of their emigrants to take part in home country elections from abroad. This article first looks at the diffusion of external voting laws and shows that over the past 25 years they have become widely-adopted and are no longer limited to specific professional categories of citizens. Second, the article explains the international diffusion of external voting by discussing the “norm- internationalization hypothesis” and the “electoral-competition hypothesis.” Third, the article attempts to demonstrate that these hypotheses cannot explain why, in a democratic context, states continue to implement a series of hurdles that deter emigrants from using their newly gained rights. Looking at recent developments in Latin America and the Middle East and North Africa, it concludes that the diffusion and variations of external voting laws result from transnational negotiation processes in a context of democratic transformation among various actors whose interests are strongly affected by the inclusion or exclusion of these new voters.

Using the post-communist experience in Romania, this article reflects upon the way to bring together the concepts of civil society and citizen commitment. Whilst civil society does not concentrate all the phenomena of citizenship, the concept remains nonetheless a privileged expression of citizen commitment. The question underlying this text is relatively simple: how should the study of citizen commitment be approached within the new civil societies of Central and Eastern Europe, and more specifically within the new Romanian civil society ? As simple as it may appear, the question becomes rapidly more complex as soon as the problems deriding from the concepts of civil society and citizen commitment themselves are taken into consideration but also because the post-communist experience is often treated in a homogeneous way whilst it is in fact empirically very heterogeneous.

Nous avons voulu étudier la question de la performance, plus particulièrement des modalités utilisées par les salariés pour accroître leur performance et atteindre les normes organisationnelles, tout en nous intéressant aux modes de gestion des organisations qui y sont associés. Nous avons donc entrepris une recherche auprès des cadres d’une grande entreprise québécoise. Nous avons donc voulu nous pencher sur la question du point de vue des acteurs que sont les cadres des trois premiers niveaux de gestion afin de mieux comprendre les moyens et les dispositifs qu'ils peuvent mettre en oeuvre pour atteindre les objectifs qui leur sont fixés ou encore qu'ils se fixent parfois eux-mêmes.

The various contributions reexamine the thesis of decline in political participation examining classical forms of participation (electoral turnout, partisanhip, union membership...) and more "challeging" ones such as associative membreship, the Internet, and so on. The global quantitative decline can be challenged by the development of more reflexive forms of participation. [less ▲]
