Diaspora as Cultures of Cooperation

Global and Local Perspectives

Herausgeber: Carment, David, Sadjed, Ariane (Eds.)


  • Makes a major contribution to the field of ethnopolitics
  • Broadens our understanding of diasporas by analysing their role in global cooperation
  • Draws on migration studies and International Relations to compelling effect

Über dieses Buch

This book examines the dynamic processes by which communities establish distinct notions of 'home' and 'belonging'. Focusing on the agency of diasporic groups, rather than (forced or voluntary) dispersion and a continued longing for the country of origin, it analyses how a diaspora presence impacts relations between 'home' and host countries. Its central concern is the specific role that diasporas play in global cooperation, including cases without a successful outcome. Bridging the divide between diaspora studies and international relations, it will appeal to sociologists, scholars of migration, anthropologists and policy-makers.
