Summary . This volume discusses how diasporas have evolved and engaged in economic, social and cultural domains of their host and home countries across the globe. The volume is divided into six parts, discussing the issues, challenges and development experiences of diasporas; diaspora finance and economic development; knowledge transfer; the politics of inclusion and exclusion; gender and cultural representations of diasporas in literature and performing arts. It is truly a global representation of diasporic engagement. Its contributions come from experts in various disciplines across the globe, and the chapters cover discussions from countries as far apart as New Zealand and the Caribbean. The contributors discuss major issues related to local communities' engagement with the diaspora and diaspora-home relations in Africa, South Asia, New Zealand, Europe and the USA, providing a panoramic view of diasporic flows in the twenty-first century. The interdisciplinary thrust of the volume, together with its global focus, makes it useful to researchers, academics and experts from the social sciences, population sciences and development studies, as also to analysts and policymakers across the world.
