Diaspora responses in times of disaster and other crises



Time: 12:00 to 3:30pm
Location: Conference Room 1, Peter Shergold Building, Parramatta Campus, Western Sydney University, Sydney

Diaspora communities in Australia play a significant and well-recognised role in providing financial assistance to both their country of origin and host countries. Increasingly, social assistance through knowledge, norms and values, is also being recognised as a key contributor to developmental assistance.

This seminar is a great opportunity to explore the many different dimensions of diaspora engagement and the critical contribution of both financial and social aid. Collaborate with diaspora organisations and others who work in the field to share ideas and investigate opportunities for action.

PLEASE BOOK YOUR SPACE NOW! Spaces are limited.
