Diaspora diplomacy is a fairly new term that has gained currency at a time when the activity of cultivating external relations is a multidimensional process open to many participants. ... This particular sub-branch of diplomacy is about engaging a country’s overseas community to contribute to building relationships with foreign countries. A migrant community becomes a diaspora if it retains a memory of, and some connection with, its country of origin. Without that memory or connection, migration simply becomes one more footnote in the movement of people that has occurred throughout history since the first groups migrated from what scientists regard as humankind’s original home, Africa, perhaps 150,000 years ago.
