Transfer of Capital through Expatriate Knowledge (TOKTEN UNDP)


The TOKTEN project, implemented by UNDP, deploys ‘highly qualified’ professionals from the diaspora to serve as short-term volunteers in various Palestinian institutions. Running since 1994 in the West Bank and Gaza, this initiative illustrates how a skilled expatriate workforce can contribute decisively through sectoral interventions – primarily in education, health and information technology – to institution-building processes in a challenging context while fostering a sense of national affinity.
