About the project
The project is financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic through the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic (grant no. TITBMZV919). It is an applied research project which aims to answer policy relevant questions and make recommendations to public authorities and policy makers, but it is also open to explore new directions that may emerge along the way.
We use a mixed method approach, applying a questionnaire survey targeted at a large sample of respondents, as well as in-depth interviewing and focus group discussions with selected individuals and representatives of diaspora organisations. This website also serves for data gathering by presenting options to participate in the questionnaire and providing a space for communication regarding diaspora issues through our discussion forum.
The project will close in 2022 with a workshop for diaspora members and representatives of relevant public services. Further outcomes include project reports and a database of (voluntarily shared) diaspora contacts for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
