The third Rinus Penninx Best Paper Award has been awarded to Ali Chaudhary for his paper 'Voting "Here" and "There": Interrogating Immigrant Political Integration and Transnational Political Remittances'

The Rinus Penninx Best Paper Award was awarded to IMI's Ali Chaudhary at the 13th Annual IMISCOE Conference, held in Prague on 30 June-2 July 2016.

'Voting "Here" and "There": Interrogating Immigrant Political Integration and Transnational Political Remittances' explores why some migrants vote in their countries of destination while others vote in the elections of their origin countries.

The award is presented in honour of the founding father of IMISCOE, is an annual award for the best paper submitted to and presented at the IMISCOE annual conference, and sponsored by Comparative Migration Studies. This is the second time the award has been given to a paper from IMI: in 2014 the inaugural prize was awarded to Marie-Laurence Flahaux and Hein de Haas.

A version of the winning paper is published as an IMI working paper.
