What variables influence the electoral behaviour of citizens voting in home country elections from abroad? Despite the growing interest of migration scholars for the topic of external voting, this question remains largely unanswered. Basing ourselves on the existing political science literature on electoral behaviour and on the migration literature on immigrants’ participation in host country politics, we isolate different hypotheses that explain emigrants’ preferences in home country politics. We then build four models of voters based on these hypotheses: the social group voter, the ideological voter, the interest-driven voter, and the transnational voter. In the second part of the paper, we verify the validity of these models using the results of a survey carried out with Bolivian emigrants who took part in the 2009 Bolivian presidential election from abroad. Overall, this article identifies the drivers of immigrant transnational political participation and contributes to current debates on social remittances. [less ▲]

The school is an agent of socialisation in which coexists a plurality of collective memories. The curriculum ensures the transmission of official memory. However, alternative collective memories might also be discussed by students and teachers. This leads to a competition of memories. More specifically, this observation may be made regarding the transmission of the Holocaust in Belgium. This emotional historical fact, classically taught according to the official curriculum, is nevertheless sometimes questioned. This is for example the case for non-Belgian students, who consider other possible memories and want to discuss about these. In order to analyze this possible competition between collective memories, we explored the speeches of young from multiple national origins in relation to the topic of the Holocaust. Two focus groups, differing on the basis of the national origin of the participants, were conducted with young students aged form sixteen to eighteen. The discourse analysis aimed at showing (1) if there is a competition between different collective memories, and (2) to what extent political arguments are mobilized by the students. [less ▲]

The main purpose of this article is to present the results of a research project on the political participation of Latin American migrants in Andalusia (mainly in the cities of Seville and Huelva). The project uses a broad concept of what political participation constitutes, including both civic practices and activities associated with conventional politics, and adopts a transnational perspective. It is based on 45 semi-structured interviews with politically active migrants and members of political parties and other institutions. The article highlights some of the main findings of the research, including the importance of taking into account migrants’ previous political experiences, as well as the role played by migrant associations in order to better understand their political practices.

This essay engages two questions: the meta question and the political question. The meta question investigates the notion of political philosophy and subsequently its function. The definition of political philosophy constitutes the starting point of the discussion. The inquiry of political philosophy entails the reflection on human nature, which is necessary since men are no angels. In this debate, the idea of natural right transcends the meta question. Whereas some philosophers believe that there is such a natural right, others refute this claim. The following point concerns the relationship between theory and practice. Should political philosophy be confined to the room of theory or enter the political arena? If so, how do philosophers influence political practice? The conclusion of the meta question considers the potential end of philosophy. The political question studies the origins of government, the reasons for which men agree to unite into political organizations. The responses to the meta question laid the foundations for the explanations of such notions as social contract, civil state or constitution, and commonwealth. On the basis of these explorations, the question of the best regime can be answered. Eventually, the continuum between preservation (of the government) and revolution is given attention. This theme raises the question of what happens once a government has been established. Political philosophers have reflected on the manner how to preserve a political regime (especially by looking at the relationship between the ruled and the rulers) as well as, for some of them, on the age-old question is there a right to overthrow a government. I shall attempt to answer these two fundamental questions by providing a forum of dialogue between eight major political philosophers: four Ancients – Aristotle, John Locke, Publius (Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay), and Immanuel Kant – and four Moderns – Leo Strauss, Alasdair MacIntyre, Michael Oakeshott, and Hannah Arendt. The paper starts with the conversation between the eight thinkers on the meta question. And, on the basis of the answers to the meta question, the dialogue continues over the political question in the second part of the essay. [less ▲]

We usually study the emerging of a democratic process (as we can observe presently in some East European countries) searching to analyze globally the impacts on this phenomenon of varied consequences of institutional arrangements. However, how could we determine if such arrangement can appear as an accelerator or as a brake to this process without first reflecting on the logics based on which individuals perceive these arrangements and act into them? In fact, we try to demonstrate in this paper that influence of an institution, whatever it can be, must not be conceived as an unidirectional relation (such as an often used logic implies), and that socialization that it brings about must be analyzed according to a process of the construction of reality by the individual. Thus, profiting from this perspective implies the development of another analytical framework, according to a logic based on relativistic interactionism (as suggested, for example, by Jean Piaget’s works). This framework allows us to propose a new research approach, namely the singular study of individuals inside a context (working at the level of the dialectical processes of how the world of reference of each individual is constructed). The demonstration of the interest of this framework is lead with the help of an analysis of some clusters (built with a particular “hierarchic classification” method) of answers of 1000 or so young people from Québec, questioned in 1990 on their participation and their interest in politics.
