Diaspora reengagement and reintegration is impossible without those who live in the contexts they wish to ReTurn to. In the Diaspora framework, we stress the importance of valuing the opinions of those living on the ground. We ask and instruct the Diaspora to be more collaborative with ongoing efforts within countries. ReTurn believes coalitions between diaspora and locals will help create pathways towards peace in many countries.
So, to help locals (Re)Engage their diaspora, we are developing a framework for them to use. We will be working with local practitioners, leaders, and young activists to create the framework.
