This first IOM high-level dialogue on diasporas was an experiment. 55 ministers and minister-level officials from all parts of the world sat together for two days and discussed issues on the growing global diaspora and the contributions they bring to development.

Participants were able to exchange views on how to strengthen political and institutional commitment as a basis for designing and implementing policies and programmes of diaspora engagement relevant to their countries’ respective circumstances and needs.
