Critical Role of Diaspora in International Scientific Cooperation

This book includes contributions by international experts and high level Diaspora from the public and private sectors across the world on the critical role of Diaspora towards sustainable and inclusive knowledge-based growth in the country of origin to ensure countries of origin are benefiting from their Diaspora and competing at the forefront of science, technology and innovation (STI). This volume includes selection of the best papers presented during the 3rd Diaspora International Conference of World Association for Sustainable Development (WASD) and Sudan Knowledge, held in London, UK 25-26 July 2016. The chapters in the book provide details of how to ensure relevant Diaspora groups are involved in the development and review of policies that impact on them or their country of origin. They are consulted with regard to the objectives and desired outcomes of the policy, and the best means of achieving them.
