This article explores the implications of kin-citizenship policies on trans-border minority claim-making. To demonstrate the implications of kin-citizenship for minority claim-making strategies, the article investigates how Hungary’s introduction of extraterritorial citizenship and voting rights has affected the claim-making potential of Hungarian minority parties in the neighboring countries. The article argues that, contrary to existing theories, increased kin-state activism through extraterritorial citizenship does not necessarily lead to the radicalization of minorities, but it does compromise the mobilization potential and claim-making strategy of trans-border political actors in their home-states. The article also shows that increased kin-state activism does not necessarily increase interstate and interethnic tension.
