This report draws on discussions from SEESOX’s Greek Diaspora Project (GDP) workshop, entitled “Diaspora and Development: The case of Greece” which took place on March 3rd 2017 at St Antony’s College. The workshop gathered a number of highly distinguished scholars, mostly non-Greek from the field of diaspora studies, and from an interdisciplinary perspective, including history, politics, international relations, law, economics, anthropology and sociology, to discuss conceptual, methodological and comparative perspectives, within which the study of the Greek diaspora and its relationship with the Greek crisis can be contextualised. The workshop report can be found here. (https://www.sant.ox.ac.uk/centre/news/new-publication-diaspora-and-development-case-greece)
As an outcome of the meeting the GDP team was able 1) to further hone and finalize the project’s methodological and theoretical approach and 2) better assess the particularities of the Greek case through a global comparative assessment offered by the invited scholars.
