La diaspora virtuale e il suo contributo allo sviluppo

Published in Studi Emigrazione. 2009, vol. XLVI, no. 174, p. 292-304
Abstract The involvement of the highly skilled in the virtual Diaspora seems to be a valid and suitable strategy to reverse the brain drain and to make African professionals with advanced degrees able to participate to the development process in a more definite and decisive way. The so-called virtual Diaspora – the new intelligences, skilled people who study and work abroad – is the promoter of a North-South exchange that is not simply a money transfer – the well-known practice of remittances – but also concerns human resources, expertise, and skills. It is concerned with a virtual mobility, a sort of return, that can become the engine of a social and economic African regeneration, giving the emigrants the possibility to be useful to their countries of origin without changing their status in the hosting countries. This Diaspora can be an active development instrument, a main actor in the development process and an inventor of development policies.
