Abstract


One of the most critical elements of contemporary globalization is the astronomical increase in migration across the globe. This exodus of people is, indeed, the cardinal global forces driving the world in the 21st century and one resultant effect of this phenomenon which is essentially evidenced is the emergence of a large Diaspora from the South in the affluent countries of the West. Consequent upon the huge number of the African Diaspora in Western host countries, much empirical study has not been carried out to determine the activities of the African Diaspora in their respective homelands in terms of remittances and overall contribution to National development. This paper aims at studying the engagements of the African Diaspora in National Development of the continent with particular attention to Nigeria. The paper took a panoramic view of the activities of Diaspora Nigerians in order to achieve its primary objectives. A critical examination of the forms, dimensions and types of Diaspora funded projects becomes imperative. This session is therefore devoted to the discussion of Diasporas and the Efficacies of National Development with a focus on Nigeria.

Keywords: Diaspora, Africa, Nigeria, Remittance, Sustainable development.
