Abstract

This panel focuses on the role of diasporas as non-state actors in world politics. This Panel will emphasise the agency of diasporas, as opposed to those of states. It will also aim to understand how mobilized diasporas resemble or differ from other transnational social movements. The Panel also seeks to understand to what degree diasporas are autonomous actors, and to what degree their positionality in different contexts of host-states, home-states and third country locations influence their political activism. This Panel will also seek to understand how diaspora activism moves from the local, to the national, to the global levels of engagement.
