A Diaspora Studies Center needs to be established in Greece, or an existing one reconfigured, that would be able to pursue a comprehensive study of the diaspora & homeland relationship with a particular focus in the domains of politics, the economy and philanthropy & volunteerism. We explore the comparative advantage of such a Diaspora Studies Center in researching primarily homeland actors, processes and events that have a bearing on the diaspora & homeland relationship. Such a Center could also investigate how economic, political and public health & natural crises, that break out in Greece, catalyze the diaspora & homeland relationship.
