The Oxford Diaspora Programme (ODP)

The International Migration Institute at Oxford is doing some very interesting work on diasporas as part of the Oxford Diaspora Programme (ODP) built around 11 different projects on the impact of diasporas. They are: 1) stateless diasporas; 2) the nation outside the state; 3) diasporas, trade and trust; 4) African diasporas within Africa; 5) multinational families; 6) diaspora youth; 7) Hadrami diaspora in the Indian Ocean: 8) diasporas of East London 9) Diasporas and Creolization; 10) Engagement in War-Torn Societies and; the one that most interests me…11) Diasporas and Emigration States.

I'm a research fellow at an Australian university where I work on a number of projects. These include projects to do with new media and migration and the Chinese diaspora in Australia, projects on the Malaysian internet, ethno-religious issues in Singapore and Malaysia. And, before I forget many of the photos I use on this site were taken by my sister, Jessie and myself. All rights are reserved.
