Electoral rights of immigrants discussed in Malmö

A study visit and seminar on electoral rights of third country nationals, organized for 28 participants from 9 states  of Central and Eastern EU, took place in Malmö last week. Government,  municipal and immigrants´ association representatives were invited by the Organization for Aid to Refugees and Malmö University to learn from the Swedish experience in including immigrants into public and political life. The event, supported by the European Union, was a unique learning opportunity for Central and Eastern EU experts with a view to improve participation of immigrants in local election. Marcell Lőrincz from the Subjective Vaues Foundation shared the details of the Hungarian situation with the other participants.
