Ties that bind? Opportunities and pitfalls of migrants’ international networks
Migrants are embedded in networks of family, personal and professional connections, and they form new networks during and after migration and displacement. This webinar will explore the role that these international networks are playing, and can play, in creating transnational bridges to address contemporary global challenges. Panellists will discuss the various roles of diasporas in supporting the circularity of skills and talents but also providing humanitarian aid in the face of crisis. They will also explore the role of networks in finding solutions to protracted displacement and facilitating integration in receiving communities. Lastly, how might these different networks speak to each other to amplify their collective impact?
