Map, globe, compass, book.In Athens, many shops are now closed in the city centre. In Dublin, you can see many advertisements showing Sale or Rent near Grafton Street. Spain has a record 20% unemployment. In Greece, the economic collapse has affected how many people are unemployed. With the different austerity budgets, people cannot even get a less qualified job.

Voting Rights After Moving Abroad

Voting hand © Dominique VERNIER - Fotolia.comEven when you have taken on a new home, a new country, a new system - many expats still feel the responsibility to participate in the politics of the country they left. But this can be more complicated than it seems. Voting rights as an expat are not certain, and complicated and ever-changing laws concerning expat status make the situation more difficult.
