My current research focuses on examining practices with respect to non-citizen enfranchisement across 60 democracies. The main question that I aim to answer in my thesis is ?What explains the variation in practices with regard to the granting of voting right to non-citizen residents? Why have some democracies adopted divergent practices in their enfranchisement of resident aliens, while others have rejected immigrant voting altogether??
