Who are the Diaspora?
Diaspora can be defined as migrants and refugees - and their descendants - who maintain ties with their form or ancestral homeland - and with compatriots living elsewhere
DRC recognises diaspora as crucial transnational civil society actors. We recognise the substantial impact they have in countries of origin, migration transit, and countries of destination and, consequently, their potential for improving the situation for many of those affected by displacement.
Who are we?
We, the Diaspora Programme, facilitate, support, and enhance the role of diasporas as effective agents of humanitarian assistance, recovery and development.
The Diaspora Programme operates through different projects that touch on several thematic areas and operate across multiple geographies. Find more about these projects, our publications and workshops below!
