Diaspora Entrepreneurs and Contested States

Maria Koinova

  • Introduces a typological theory to the study of diasporas in international relations
  • Examines four types of diaspora entrepreneurs based on their socio-spatial linkages to de facto states (Kosovo, Palestine, and Nagorno-Karabakh) and adjacent fragile states
  • Demonstrates how diaspora entrepreneurs interact with host-land foreign policies, homeland governments, parties, non-state actors, and critical events from different global contexts
  • Informed by large-scale fieldwork among hard-to-reach diaspora populations in Europe and its neighbourhood
  • Offers a systematic comparative analysis of diaspora lobbying in Europe
  • Integrates the study of fragile statehood with that of migrants' incorporation and transnationalism
