Abstract This article reviews the recent literature that analyses, within a normative cosmopolitan framework, the question of granting voting rights to "nonresidents" in circumstances defined by concerns for global justice. It examines such inquiries as grounded in a recognition of the democratic paradox, that of democracy's domain; surveys the different applications of the all affected interests principle, commonly invoked as possible solution to the paradox; and advances a range of alternative analytical and normative frameworks to rethink the justification of extraterritorial rights. It concludes on a note regarding the normative potential of "modular citizenship" and virtual representation when articulated in a deliberative democratic key.
