Globalization, migration, and increased media consumption and communication technologies present interesting dynamics in trying to understand the shifting mediascape of communication among diaspora communities, their homelands, and countries of settlement.
Diaspora Media Project explores how journalists in the diaspora are contributing to global understanding in an era of extremism and intolerance and how diaspora media can help in the diffusion of knowledge about other parts of the world.
Diaspora communities notably migrants, refugees, sojourners, exiles, expatriates, and all immigrants make use of the news media in different ways. Immigrant journalists and civil society activists engage in the production and distribution of content that reflects their cultural experiences and identities. The relationship of media and people on a global basis has implications for national media and cultures, international cooperation and solidarity, good governance, and evolution of global citizenship.
