International Politics of Migration, Refugees and Diaspora

To join a working group you must first join BISA.

The working group ‘International Politics of Migration, Refugees and Diaspora’ responds to a growing demand to discuss issues of migration and international politics at BISA. It aims to consolidate discussions within several streams of scholarship, which speak to each other, but are mostly discussed in isolation. The group will incorporate scholarship on how diasporas as non-state actors affect international affairs for democratisation, development, conflict and post- conflict reconstruction, and how sending states exercise their agency to engage diasporas for their own state-building and economic projects.
