US Launches Diaspora Diplomacy

May 18, 2011

Over the last couple of days the State Department twitter feeds have been chronicling the Diaspora forum that has been held in Washington.  Given that the US is a key destination for immigration exploiting the diplomatic possibilities of diasporas seems a n0-brainer.  The intention is to take this forward with an International Diaspora Engagement Alliance (iDEA) with the five themes of diaspreneurship, diasplomacy, diasporacorps (volunteering), diaspora 2.0, diasphilanthropy.  Not sure about the labels but seems like a good idea.  Details are here.
