The Power of the Diaspora - Author Meets Readers
Author Meets Readers invites Carleton students and the community to join an informal discussion on new books published by members of the Carleton University Faculty of Public Affairs.
About the Editor: David Carment is a Professor with the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (NPSIA) and a Fellow of the Canadian Global Affairs institute.
About the Book: "Diaspora as Cultures of Cooperation: Global and Local Perspectives" examines the dynamic processes by which communities establish distinct notions of 'home' and 'belonging'. Focusing on the agency of diasporic groups, rather than (forced or voluntary) dispersion and a continued longing for the country of origin, it analyses how a diaspora presence impacts relations between 'home' and host countries. Its central concern is the specific role that diasporas play in global cooperation, including cases without a successful outcome.
