The Diaspora Engagement Self-Assessment Tool (DESAT)

The Diaspora Engagement Self-Assessment Tool (DESAT) has been developed to allow African Union Member States to systematically review and assess their current diaspora engagement environment. Based on a structured framework, the tool breaks diaspora engagement down into separate pillars (or categories); answers to multiple-choice indicator survey questions in each pillar quantify a Member States self-assessed level. The DESAT calculates an overall diaspora engagement score, individual pillar scores and creates an automated recommendation list. The DESAT is designed to allow the easy identification of strengths and weaknesses in diaspora engagement environments, the ability to monitor scoring over time and facilitate Member State comparison and benchmarking.
