Independent Study Film
This short documentary is a call to action for people to engage with a larger project on the reintegration of diaspora. Please read the information below to learn more about this independent study film and how you can get involved for the larger documentary coming soon. A growing trend around the world right now is the migration of diaspora back to their birth countries or where they have traced their lineage. The reasons behind the movement vary. For many, the prospects of taking the new skillsets, talents, and experiences that they’ve gained abroad back to various parts of the world is alluring. In the past, diaspora have played a critical role in challenging corruption and promoting peace around the world. The migration back may create greater pathways for peace if this movement is supported well. Peace building devotees working in the humanitarian field and the conflict resolution field need to do a better job assessing, addressing, and supporting this movement. This independent study looks to identify why this movement is so important to the international community. It also looks to identify the various perspectives surrounding the role of diaspora and what exists to support them. To get involved, please contact Cudjoe@brandeis.edu
