The role of the African diaspora in conflicts

The role of the African diaspora in conflicts

The question of the migration and integration of groups of migrants in Germany is not only the subject of discussion in the media and in public but also in the scientific debate. This discussion no longer focuses solely on the migrants' opportunities for integration. It also deals with the question of the role members of the diaspora play in their countries of exile in the political development of their home countries. In particular: Do they serve to exacerbate conflicts from afar or contribute to settling crises? A BICC concept paper on the "The Role of the African Diaspora in the Conflict Process", commissioned by the Ministry for Generations, Family, Women and Integration (MGFFI) of the Land of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), has studied this issue.
