"Most governments in developing countries are only starting to think beyond remittances to the other ways that diaspora communities can add to the growth and vitality of their ancestral countries. This book shows how diaspora participation in tourism, philanthropy, volunteerism, and other areas can be an entry point for a broader, more satisfying relationship between Jamaicans at home and abroad."
"A compelling overview of the linkages between diaspora populations and how thoughtful efforts to create opportunities for engagement with their countries of origin can make a real difference to development."
