The seminar is the first in a series planned under a project with the same title. The project is premised on the idea that diasporas are a valuable resource for European societies. The ultimate goal of this project, which involves a partnership between four organizations (AGBU Europe, EUJS, Phiren Amenca and EGAM), is to establish a European network dedicated to the promotion of, and cooperation between European diasporas. With this goal in mind, it aims to discuss and flesh out the notion of diasporas and explore its wider usefulness in Europe at large. It will also explore the opportunities which Europe may provide diasporas, and diasporas to Europe. It will, finally, seek to develop a practical agenda as a basis for a common dialogue with the European institutions.More information on the project is available online.
