Diasporas and Development aims to deepen the understanding of the promise and pitfalls of Diaspora engagement and how it may help to bridge the distances between societies in an unequal world. Just as trade finance information and technologies are moving rapidly across borders so too have labour markets and transnational migrant communities. Migrants are sending large quantities of money back to their countries of origin in the form of philanthropy remittances and commercial investments. They are also sharing knowledge and skills learned or honed abroad. Is greater global equity and inevitable consequences of Diaspora engagement in their countries of origin or can it actually aggravate inequity. Diasporas and Development examines the positive and sometimes negative impacts of Diaspora engagement through examination of policies and philanthropic modalities as well as specific regional examples of Diaspora activity.
