A new paper released today by the Centre for Humantiarian Dialogue explores the roles that diasporas can play in peace processes. Author, Marc Probst uses insights from two cases studies – Laos and Papua, Indonesia – to look at the current debate regarding the role of diasporas in conflict resolution and draws on lessons learnt from Laos and Papua to suggest ways in which peacemakers can constructively engage diaspora communities.
