This Global Conference for Diaspora Networks in Science is a continuation of the recent Global Diaspora Summit which outlined the future agenda of action for global diaspora engagement through the Dublin Declaration. As the world emerges at various paces from the COVID-19 pandemic, the GDS serves as a statement of global commitment and collaboration to the advancement of Objective 19 of the GCM – “Create conditions for migrants and diasporas to fully contribute to sustainable development in all countries” – and of the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals. This commitment comes at a time of opportunity to engage diaspora and transnational communities, including diaspora youth, as partners for both humanitarian response and development, to mobilize the diverse range of diaspora capitals – cultural, economic, social and human – for the benefits of societies in countries of origin and destination and the protection of migrants and saving lives. The Conference aims to enable science diaspora from all scientific disciplines, including basic, social, applied, and humanities to come together – and with other multi-stakeholders such as academia, governments, industry and media – to learn from each other, share experiences, challenges, and success and identify best practices that can make these networks more efficient in their work wherever the scientists are located, and especially in their home countries. There are different lessons to be learned from different stories of diaspora networks with their native countries. From September the 21st till September the 23rd, the Global Conference for Diaspora Networks in Science will shed light on these exact lessons to inspire, catalyse and bring about change.
