Collection of Diaspora Engagement Practices
The Collection was developed in the framework of the Euro-African Dialogue on Migration and Development (Rabat Process) with the aim to enhance the Dialogue partner countries’ understanding of the profile of their Diasporas and identify the most innovative strategies for diaspora engagement. The publication provides guidance at the strategic level on how to maximize the Diasporas’ economic, social and cultural development contributions, punctuated with concrete examples of initiatives from across the Rabat Process and beyond. In addition, it sheds light upon new and exciting trends in the field of diaspora engagement. It looks at how innovations in crowdfunding, block chain, and mobile telephony are transforming the landscape of diaspora remittances and investments; how some partner governments have decentralized their engagement activities; or how diaspora engagement can take a segmented approach to reach different generations.
