Diaspora Communities Investment in Development and Humanitarian Response
The project aims to capture data the engagement, or lack of, in development and humanitarian response in countries or regions of origin by second generation diaspora/children of migrants. The study will look at diasporas from the Horn of Africa (Eritrea, Ethiopia, Sudan, South Sudan and Somalia) and the Middle East region (Yemen, Iraq, Syria). The objective is to seek better understanding of current engagements, existing platforms to support these initiatives and build a network of diaspora youth engaged in these sectors, or who are interested. Based on the findings and recommendations, a project can be developed to response to these needs.
As part of the project, the Shabaka team has launched a survey titled 3rd Culture Kids engagement in development and humanitarian response. They survey closed on 31 July 2016.
