EUDiF is exploring practices, policies and trends in diaspora engagement around the world through research and dialogue activities in order to build an open access knowledge hub on diaspora engagement.

The first step in this process is a global mapping exercise of DG International Partnerships’ partner countries. At the start of 2020, we mapped the first 50 countries with a team of regional experts. A second wave of research will add another 50 countries in autumn 2020 and the EUDiF team will regularly update the country information throughout the project.

The results of the research are included in the interactive map and available for download in the Library. The findings also help us to develop targeted capacity development activities and identify opportunities for dialogue, cooperation and our diaspora expertise pilot project.

Statistics included in the map come from the UN and World Bank 2019 datasets. As diaspora definitions vary widely, we have chosen to use comparable data on emigration. We are aware that this does not include all who consider themselves diaspora. In certain cases national statistics are included in the fact sheets. 

This map is for illustration purposes only. It is based on UN methodology for statistical convenience and does not imply any assumption regarding political or other affiliation of countries or territories by EUDiF, the International Centre for Migration Policy Development or the European Commission.
