The Microfoundations of Diaspora Politics

How do diasporas respond to attempts at engagement from the state and other actors? Why are some communities recognized while others aren't? Join us in a virtual book launch to find out. 

The Microfoundations of Diaspora Politics examines the various actors within and beyond the state that participate in the design and implementation of diaspora policies, as well as the mechanisms through which diasporas are constructed by governments, political parties, diaspora entrepreneurs, or international organisations.

The Elliott School Book Launch Series is proud to present a virtual discussion of the book featuring the co-editors, Harris Mylonas and Alexandra Délano Alonso, two scholars Alexander Betts and Luicy Pedroza that will comment on the book, as well as remarks by Dean Alyssa Ayres of the Elliott School.
