Abstract
In an era of rapid globalization, the formal and informal power of border-crossing civil society networks is increasingly pertinent for policy-makers, business leaders, scholars and the civil societies themselves. In the context, diasporas matter a great deal. They include a range of ethnic communities formed from various categories of people, such a political and war refugees, (im)migrants, and ethnic and religious minorities that have maintained a sense of collective identity away from their homeland, operating exemplary transnational network between host states and homelands. The challenges they pose and the opportunities they represent for both their host countries and homelands are neither well enough understood nor sufficiently addressed.
