"Parliament and Diaspora in Europe offers a rich comparative study of the structure of representation in the three 'cosmonations' - nations in which the national citizenry represented in parliament includes both residents of the national territory and emigres residing abroad. Laguerre offers foundational insights into the process of institutionalized political connections between emigres and their country-of-origin that a single nation case study could not have." - Louis DeSipio, Professor, Political Science, University of California Irvine
Parliament and Diaspora in Europeby M. Laguerre
This book analyzes the unfolding of a new institutional phenomenon: the cosmonational parliament of the cross-border nation and the expanded state, focusing on three European national parliaments, namely the French Senate, the Italian Chamber of Representatives and Senate, and the Croatian unicameral parliament.
