DESCRIPTION

This is an analysis of the links between the Indian Diaspora and the state, and how this Diaspora can influence economic and foreign policy making in their country of origin. The author focuses on India, and presents a case whereby the Indian government in post-independence years ostracised its Diaspora despite the need for outside help for economic development. The study looks at why India did not cultivate a relationship after independence, why there was still no change even in light of its economic liberalization and what have been the consequences of this missing relationship. The book deals with the subject of Diaspora from the point of view of the country of origin and also looks at the subject of State-Diaspora relations in a holistic way including the historic, political, economic and sociological aspect.
