European Diaspora Seminar: Graz, 3-4 April 2006

The seminar will focus on challenges of economic development, institutional transformation and future EU enlargements in South-East Europe, especially from a practitioner's perspective. The second day will consider the experience of countries that have recently acceded to the European Union and the capacity of diaspora communities to assist their home and ancestral countries.

The South-East European diasporas in Australia will provide a focus for discussion with presentations by leading Australian students of the subject. This will be followed by a discussion of selected aspects of diaspora involvement in the transformation of home countries, such as multi-national citizenship, multiculturalism and entrepreneurial capacity of diaspora communities. The seminar will conclude with a briefing session on projects undertaken in South-East Europe by the World University Service – Austria. The list of presenters and their presentations will be available shortly.
