Diaspora as influencers

Migrants and diaspora communities are recognized by the United Nations as important contributors to development. They play an invaluable role in society through: their economic contributions to the countries that they live in and come from, the cultural heritage and diversity that they bring with them, the charity that they give when their countries, families and friends are hit by crisis, and their entrepreneurship, ability to innovate and create social change.
