Mobility is key within the EU. More than 13 million Union citizens reside in another EU member state, representing approximately 3 percent of the EU’s working age population. However, the use of free movement rights often leads to a loss of democratic representation. Mobile EU citizens cannot vote in national elections of their country of residence unless they have been naturalised. Furthermore, if their country of citizenship has restrictions on voting from abroad, they cannot vote in the country’s elections either. How can mobile EU citizens, who benefit most directly from free movement rights, be adequately represented in and beyond national elections?
