About iDiaspora

It provides comprehensive, regularly updated data and analysis relevant to diaspora communities, policy makers, NGO actors, and showcases successful diaspora actions and partnerships.


Diaspora as Influencers

Migrants and diaspora communities are recognized by the United Nations as important contributors to development. They play an invaluable role in society through:

  • their economic contributions to the countries that they live in and come from,
  • the cultural heritage and diversity that they bring with them,
  • the charity that they give when their countries, families and friends are hit by crisis, and
  • their entrepreneurship, ability to innovate and create social change.

Why Idiaspora?

iDIASPORA provides a platform to voice your opinions and propose recommendations on how migration should be governed through the forthcoming Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration and beyond.

iDIASPORA serves as a resource hub that allows you to access diaspora success stories, best practices and relevant policies from around the globe.

iDIASPORA lets you engage with each other, organizations, experts and institutions and find opportunities to leverage your work.
