This book aims to capture the context in Finland and Somalia which has led to the development and the implementation of the very first MIDA project for Somalia.

MIDA Health Somaliland-Puntland has shown that it is possible and meaningful to engage the diaspora for development activities back home. The project has also demonstrated that authorities in Finland and in Somalia are very interested in and supportive of this type of engagement.

The book is directed to a diverse audience of policymakers and practitioners in migration and development as much as the larger public interested in contemporary transnational issues.
