This paper is concerned with the elaboration of a conceptual framework for tracing and understanding the dynamics that shape the degree and the nature of the connection between diaspora and homeland, through the examination of the case of the public and the private education domains in Greece. More specifically, the research questions that this paper seeks to answer are: Which factors influence the transmission of social remittances from the diaspora to the homeland? What kind of dynamics are developed during this transmission in the public and the private spheres? Do they lead to divergences or convergences? This paper argues that conflicting dynamics in both the public and the private spheres create a complex regime of disconnections that make diaspora philanthropy and volunteerism become a highly contestable process. Our conceptualization will be situated in the discussion of diaspora philanthropy, before being grounded in the theories of diaspora engagement and policy implementation. To test our hypothesis, we will use a methodology of a qualitative analysis of interviews supplemented by secondary data.
