Oxford Diasporas Programme

The Oxford Diasporas Programme (ODP) includes researchers from the University of Oxford's three migration research centres and other departments across the University It is led by Professor Robin Cohen and funded by the Leverhulme Trust from 2011 to 2015. ODP consists of 11 projects looking at the social, economic, political and cultural impact of diasporas (transnational communities of people dispersed from their homeland) through a range of disciplinary perspectives and research methods. The projects cover case studies from both the global North and South.

The website offers a wealth of information on diaspora research and some excellent interviews with leading scholars in the field, including Professor Robin Cohen and Professor Khachig Tölölyan, who founded the Diasporas journal.
