Engaging the Asian Diaspora

Engaging the Asian Diaspora By Dovelyn Rannveig Agunias and Kathleen Newland

This Migration Policy Institute brief explores how governments in Asia are facilitating diaspora contributions, including creation of conducive legal frameworks and diaspora-centered institutions to initiation of programs that specifically target diasporas as development actors. The authors detail a number of legislative proposals geared at diasporas, including flexible citizenship laws and visa arrangements, political and property rights, and reduced income tax rates.
