Our objective is to integrate the latest worldwide research on diaspora philanthropy with the experience of leading institutions active in philanthropy in Greece, and to create a community of stakeholders.
Examining the Greek homeland diaspora nexus, since the beginning of the Greek crisis, from an institutional, policy making and discoursive (rhetorical/ideological) perspective.
With our extensive UK online survey and our ethnographic research conducted in Oxford and London we aim provide a solid account of the socioeconomic, political and cultural profile of the Greek Diaspora in the UK as it has formed in the past years and to assess the extent and the conditions under which the Greeks in the UK may be willing and able to contribute to Greece at times of crisis.
Our research explores the new crisis driven emigration through the perspectives of the key actors, the emigrants themselves. It aims to explore who is emigrating, the reasons underling migration decisions as well as the multiplicity of individual pathways abroad.
Our comparative study of the Greek and Ukranian diaspora aims to reveal how major "threshold events" – ongoing crisis in Greece and political and economic crisis and consequent war in Ukraine affected diaspora mobilization, activism, interaction and impact.
