Diaspora Action Australia’s vision
Diasporas are able to contribute effectively in Australia and abroad to peace, development, humanitarian response and human rights.
Diaspora Action Australia (DAA) works with diasporas in Australia that promote peace, development, humanitarian response and human rights.
They do this by: supporting diaspora initiatives; providing resources, information and training; facilitating dialogue and shared learning; building networks; amplifying diaspora voices at local, national and international levels.
They advocate for the inclusion of diasporas in policy dialogue relating to their countries of origin and communities, and seek to build an environment in which diaspora contributions are recognised and valued.
How they define diaspora communities
People who have left their countries of origin but maintain identity and ties with those countries and with their counterparts around the world.
