Explaining the Rise of Diaspora Institutions

Description

Alan Gamlen talks about how formal offices of state dedicated to emigrants and their descendants have been largely overlooked in mainstream political studies. At this event, co-sponsored by the Centre for International Studies (CIS), the International Migration Institute (IMI) and COMPAS, Dr Gamlen asks the question 'Why do states establish and maintain diaspora engagement institutions?' Alan Gamlen (DPhil. Oxon) is a Senior Lecturer in Human Geography at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand and a Research Associate at Oxford University. He leads the Diasporas Engagement Policies project, part of the five-year Oxford Diasporas Programme funded by the Leverhulme Trust, and is Editor-in-Chief of Migration Studies, an academic journal published by Oxford University Press.
