This report explores comparatively the general questions of why different countries at different times granted voting rights to their expatriates and to their foreign residents. A more detailed explanation of the variants of this participation (i.e. expatriate participation in presidential versus legislative elections or enfranchisement of resident aliens in municipal, regional or national elections) which are directly related to internal politics, institutional design, etc., or the actual use of these political rights by the newly enfranchised, therefore, falls outside the scope of this report.
