Abstract

Non-resident voters can be an important share of the electorate. To compete for their votes, parties in the country of origin establish organisations abroad. This article analyses the organisations established by Romanian parliamentary parties in the countries hosting large numbers of Romanian migrants. The analysis relies on qualitative content analysis of party statutes and semi-structured interviews. The results indicate that parties differ in their degree of formalisation, territorial coverage and division of power when establishing their organisations abroad.
