Our partners at iDiaspora have launched an important new online certificate programme on migration governance and diaspora engagement!


The ‘Migration Governance and Diaspora Engagement’ Certificate Programme is interdisciplinary and policy-oriented, with resource persons and lecturers drawn from various sectors and thematic domains, regions and countries. They will share their experiences to provide, not only multiple perspectives, but also help the learner to develop a nuanced understanding of the dynamics of international migration and diaspora engagement. 

We know that migration is one of the defining challenges and opportunities of the 21st century, key to our global progress and sustainable development. This programme will help students gain deeper perspectives on migration governance and development, challenges and opportunities in diaspora engagement. The programme covers both theoretical and practical aspects of migration-related policies, offering opportunities for reflection and intellectually stimulating discussions based on realities in sending, transit and host countries. Students will have the opportunity to publish their work on the organisations’ platforms such as GRFDT website and iDiaspora platform, facilitated by the IOM and designed to empower diaspora engagement.
