Emigrant representation has become increasingly important and visible, albeit difficult topic, and re-evaluation of the means of emigrant political representation is necessary. This article aims to find out how the representation of emigrants could be organised in homeland politics by developing a new framework to analyse migrants’ political representation and by testing it with a case study. The findings suggest that quotas, surrogate representatives, active citizens, or collective interest groups could unravel the possible inequality in emigrant parliamentary representation.
