This study commissioned by ICMPD is co-steered by the European Union Global Diaspora Facility (EUDiF) and the Migration Partnership Facility (MPF). It aims to explore options for linking diaspora involvement with labour migration in the context of the Talent Partnerships (TPs) proposed under the new European Union (EU) Asylum and Migration Pact. Adopting an exploratory approach, the study provides insights into how diaspora organisations (identifying several diaspora segments) and individuals can be engaged in the implementation of the EU’s Talent Partnerships. The study provides practical recommendations to guide the design and thinking of these partnerships.
