881) Diaspora Populations And Security Issues In Host Countries, Prof Rex Brynen, McGill University, Montréal, Canada

This paper will explore the potential challenges posed to host countries by the presence of politically-active diaspora groups, especially those linked to homeland struggles. In doing so, it will address three main sets of questions. First, what kinds of challenges might such groups pose? Second, what sort of factors may shape the nature and intensity of the threat to host country security? Third, and by way of conclusion, what sort of policy elements ought to be included in state responses to these challenges? . .

This paper is largely a catalogue of challenges, determinants, and responses—intended to spark and frame discussion on the topic, rather than offering new empirical evidence, a new analytical perspective, or definitive conclusions.

The paper tends to focus on diaspora groups in Western, industrialized democracies, rather than the security consequence of mass regional refugee flows in the developing world. The term diaspora is far from analytically concise, and the boundaries of “immigrant,” “refugee,” migrant,” and even ethnic community or minority overlap and are intertwined. To reflect this, the concept of “transnational community” has been increasingly used in the scholarly literature. Here, the term diaspora is used interchangeably with that of “transnational community.”
