This paper provides an overview of research on diaspora philanthropy to the Asia Pacific region over the past ten years (1997-2008), with a focus on diaspora giving to China, India, the Philippines, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia, and other countries in the Asia Pacific region. It identifies practices in social investment and social entrepreneurship through strategic philanthropy by migrants and discusses how these may have facilitated sustainable social change and development in the diasporas' communities of origin; analyzes the enabling environment for diaspora philanthropy in the key countries of the region with respect to its degree of conduciveness in allowing or encouraging diaspora giving; and focuses on identifying and analyzing the gaps in research on diaspora philanthropy in Asia. The paper was prepared for presentation to the international conference on diaspora philanthropy convened by the Asia Pacific Philanthropy Consortium in Hanoi, Vietnam in May 2008.
