Jun 17th - Jun 23rd


Diaspora – a word of Greek origin meaning “dispersion” – is one of the oldest forms of human networking, long predating the invention of nation states. Today, in a time of radically diffused global power, diasporas have been reenergised and retooled as agents of diplomacy and development. Some governments view diaspora as a soft power resource that extends nation-state capacities – ministries, institutions, and programmes have been created to engage diaspora as agents of diplomatic and development goals. At the same time, diasporas are actively engaging arenas of transnational commerce, communications and politics in ways that disrupt normative ideas and practices of global governance.

UCD Clinton Institute hosted an international conference in Dublin that brought together government and NGO actors, academic scholars, corporate representatives, and a diverse range of diaspora agents to address global examples of the intersections of diaspora, diplomacy and global development.

Panels included:

    diaspora engagement: policies, models, strategies, and partnerships
    economic development: remittances, investment, and entrepreneurship
    conflict and crisis: peace-building, humanitarian aid, and post-crisis recovery
    innovation: technological solutions for development and migration challenge
    education: knowledge and skills transfer, mentorship, and e-learning
    digital diasporas: social-media and mobile communications and commerce
    diaspora politics: activism, voting, and lobbying

Kingsley Aikins - Why Diaspora Initiatives Fail

Kingsley Aikins was born and brought up in Dublin and educated at The High School, Dublin and Trinity College Dublin, from which he graduated with an honours degree in economics and politics. He also has a post-graduate Diploma in International Marketing and has studied and worked extensively in France and Spain. For five years he was the Sydney, Australia based representative of the Irish Trade Board and the Industrial Development Authority (IDA) of Ireland. He was a founding director of The Australian Ireland Fund and for two years served as Executive Director responsible for the growth of the Fund in Australia and setting up The Ireland Fund of New Zealand. In January of 1993, he moved to Boston to take over as Executive Director of The American Ireland Fund. The Fund was set up in 1976 and since then The Worldwide Ireland Funds have raised over $300 million for projects of Peace, Culture, Community Development and Education throughout the island of Ireland. In June 1995 he was appointed Chief Executive of the Worldwide Ireland Funds now active in 13 countries including Ireland. He is a member of the Institutes of Marketing, Export and Linguists. He was also responsible for the successful five-year Hope and History Campaign to raise $100 million. After 21 years he left The Ireland Funds and runs a consultancy company based in Dublin called Diaspora Matters which give advice on diaspora issues to governments, corporates and individuals. He writes and speaks extensively on Philanthropy, Diaspora and Networking and in 2011 produced a Global Diaspora Strategies Toolkit and in 2012 was the keynote speaker at the Hillary Clinton Global diaspora Forum in Washington.



Aer Lingus has experienced an increase in traffic from Canada and is expanding the number of routes between Canada and Ireland. June Tiffney took over responsibility for the Canadian market and provides a background to the expansion.
