This contributed volume focuses on diasporans, their characteristics,
networks, resources and activities in relation to international
business and entrepreneurship. It presents an overview of diaspora
concepts from an economic perspective, and analyzes the global-economic
and societal effects and mechanisms, revealing both positive and
negative aspects of diaspora activities. Providing insights into the
socio-cultural influences, it discusses diaspora entrepreneurship and
international business, the respective organisational models,
investments and business types. Lastly it offers an assessment of
managing diaspora resources and policymaking.

This book was
created by an interdisciplinary team of editors, co-authors and
reviewers including historians, sociologists, psychologists, linguists
and ethnologists, as well as experts in public policy, international
business, marketing and entrepreneurship. This unique team (many of the
authors are themselves diasporans with an extensive understanding of
their topic) provides the first global academic platform on the subject,
combining the latest empirical evidence from developing, emerging,
transitional and developed countries with various combinations of
diaspora flows that to date have received little attention.
