Diaspora engagement in times of severe crisis: A European comparative perspective
Please join us for drinks after the seminar
As co-editors of this recent volume, Othon Anastasakis, Manolis Pratsinakis and Foteini Kalantzi will offer a European comparative perspective on their findings alongside other experts on diaspora engagement.

How does a severe economic crisis impact on diaspora-homeland relations? The present volume addresses this question by exploring diaspora engagement in Greece during the protracted post-2009 eurozone crisis. In so doing, it looks at the crisis as a critical juncture in Greece’s relations with its nationals abroad. The contributors in this book explore aspects of diaspora engagement, including transnational mobilisation, homeland reform, the role of diasporic institutions, crisis driven migration, as well as, comparisons with other countries in Europe. This book provides a compelling and original interdisciplinary study of contemporary diaspora issues, through the lens of an advanced economy and democracy facing a prolonged crisis, and, as such, it is a significant addition to the literature on European diasporas.
