Diaspora Studies is a leading interdisciplinary, academic journal dedicated to the scientific study of diasporas and international migration. Based on rigorous, double-blind peer-review, the journal publishes cutting-edge analyses of diaspora issues from the perspective of international relations, economics, politics, public policy, development studies, identity, history, and critical theory. Specifically, the journal features global scholarly contributions on diaspora engagement policies, as well as political and stakeholder participation of diaspora actors and organizations. It showcases studies on the role of diaspora actors and diaspora issues for international relations, discourses, and development activities in migrants’ home and host countries. The journal welcomes theoretical and empirical contributions on comparative diasporas, the role of international organizations, and civil society and it aims to advance scholarship and debate on emerging global networks and transnational identities.

Diaspora Studies is published in association with the Organisation for Diaspora Initiatives (ODI).
