The Migration Policy Centre (MPC) is delighted to present you a new INTERACT Position paper: "Civic participation and integration: a country-of-origin perspective" by Sonia Gsir (Centre d’études de l’ethnicité et des migrations (CEDEM), Université de Liège)

This paper offers an insight into how emigration countries influence immigrants in their host society. The main objective is to explore the following questions: first, whether and how emigration countries can influence the civic participation of immigrants in immigration countries and second, whether transnational links, in particular political transnational activities, have an impact on civic participation in receiving countries.
