About this book



This volume discusses how diasporas have evolved and engaged in economic, social
and cultural domains of their host and home countries across the globe. The volume is
divided into six parts, discussing the issues, challenges and development experiences of
diasporas; diaspora finance and economic development; knowledge transfer; the politics
of inclusion and exclusion; gender and cultural representations of diasporas in literature
and performing arts. It is truly a global representation of diasporic engagement. Its contributions
come from experts in various disciplines across the globe, and the chapters
cover discussions from countries as far apart as New Zealand and the Caribbean. The
contributors discuss major issues related to local communities’ engagement with the
diaspora and diaspora–home relations in Africa, South Asia, New Zealand, Europe and
the USA, providing a panoramic view of diasporic flows in the twenty-first century. The
interdisciplinary thrust of the volume, together with its global focus, makes it useful to
researchers, academics and experts from the social sciences, population sciences and
development studies, as also to analysts and policymakers across the world.
