DRC Project: Networks-led national Diaspora dialogue in Europe

UNU-MERIT and its School of Governance were recently commissioned by the Danish Refugee Council’s (DRC) Diaspora Programme to provide support within their “Networks-led national Diaspora dialogue in Europe” project. The aim of the project is to promote Syrian civil society and diaspora as constructive stakeholders for the future of Syria and in their countries of residence, by empowering Syrian networks in Europe to start national dialogues for Syrians in the diaspora on their role in their host country and towards Syria. The research component is headed by Eleni Diker and Nora Jasmin Ragab, who will provide technical support to the networks, while using the opportunity to document and analyse the country dialogues events, in order to generate lessons learned, successful practices, and recommendations aimed at empowering Syrian civil society organisations in their constructive engagement towards Syria and the host countries.
