Les diasporas au premier plan de la protection sociale; les impacts, les dynamiques et opportunités futures

Les pays sont responsables de fournir une protection sociale à leurs citoyens et, dans un contexte migratoire, ce sont les pays de destination qui sont les principaux responsables. Cependant, les limitations de l'accès des migrants à la protection sociale ont donné lieu à une pléthore de mesures informelles, tels que celles fournies par les communautés transnationales et les diasporas qui soutiennent leurs familles et leurs communautés à travers des réseaux personnels, permettant d’accéder aux soins de santé, à l'éducation, à la retraite et à la sécurité sociale.

While diaspora actors have long contributed in various forms to humanitarian response efforts in their respective Countries of Origin (CoOs), most of this involvement has historically been ad hoc. These contributions include contextual knowledge, local connections, quick mobilization, financial support, and volunteers.
