Diaspora-led development through the corporate social responsibility initiatives of talented migrants

Gutiérrez Chávez, Juan Enrique
Abstract:
In this paper we explore the idea that talented migrants can assist in the development and growth of their economies of origin through brain-circulation dynamics, linking the developed world where they live and developing homelands they (or their ancestors in the case of later-generation diasporans) left behind. Depending on the roles these talented people play in the organizational (and institutional) environment at both ends of the migratory trail, different alternatives of diaspora-led initiatives are available to them. When these roles are attached to the private sector, the introduction of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives piggybacking preexisting diaspora tools (such as talent networks, open migration chains, diaspora-oriented institutions, etc.) might be the more appropriate and efficient channels.
