Diasporas in Home Country Politics

Diasporas in Home Country Politics

Notice the new section of the Asch web site!  “Diasporas in Home Country Politics” is the new tab at the top of the Asch home page.

Diasporas have been studied for their effects on the economics, politics, and culture of their host countries, usually Western countries.  Much less attention has been given to the effects of diasporas on their countries of origin, and especially little attention has been given to diaspora effects on the politics of their countries of origin.  This new section of the Asch web site has been initiated to bring together research on precisely this topic: the power of diasporas in home country politics.

Everyone is invited to submit work of this kind–your own or others’–to Clark McCauley (  Titles, abstracts, and author emails should be  submitted for posting in the new section.   The goal is to develop an interdisciplinary subculture that will forward understanding of  the power of diasporas, for good and for ill, in home country politics.

The impetus for this new initiative is recent work by Maria Koinova; her three papers already posted provide a fast start for the new section!
