Diaspora as cultures of cooperation: global and local perspectives

Contributor(s): Carment, David [Editor] | Sadjed, Ariane [Editor].
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Migration, Diasporas and Citizenship. Publisher: Cham Palgrave Macmillan 2017Description: xxxii, 290 p.ISBN: 9783319328911.Subject(s): Emigration and immigration | Emigration and immigration - Political aspects | Transnationalism | International cooperationDDC classification: 325.254 Summary: 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. http://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9783319328911#otherversion=9783319328928
