by Bengt T. Henoch
World Review of Science, Technology and Sustainable Development (WRSTSD), Vol. 3, No. 1, 2006


Abstract: This paper reviews the relations and links between diaspora and their home and host countries, and defines methodologies and technologies that, in a conceptualised frame, can support diasporas' role in developing their home country and creating wealth for their home country and them. The focus is on trade and enterprise development. The review covers demographic and social data for diaspora and their home countries, supporting entrepreneurial and innovative systems and ICT and knowledge management. The concepts are joined into an innovation framework for analysing and evaluating diasporas' contribution to export trade and enterprise development in their home countries. Finally, implementation strategies and benefits are discussed.
