This will be done building on earlier articles already published about this topic by The Broker and Partos.

This Thursday, the first article will be published in which Dorien Deketele and Nina Staal from IOM the Netherlands will share the lessons learned and success stories of our programmes on migration and development: CD4D – Connecting Diaspora for Development and ED4D – Entrepreneurship by Diaspora for Development.

Every Thursday, new articles will follow, based on interviews with and contributions from external experts, including academics from Maastricht Graduate school of Governance as well as diaspora professionals and entrepreneurs Marina Diboma (Netherlands-Africa Business Council), Fridah Ntarangwi (Zidicircle) and Saskia Kloezeman (North-South Consulting).

By showcasing the impact of knowledge transfer en entrepreneurial initiatives, IOM, Partos and The Broker aim to stress the importance of including diaspora communities in development efforts.
