APSA 2011 Annual Meeting Paper
Diasporas are poorly understood. Most of our understanding comes from a few extreme cases, so we really do not know what differentiates groups that mobilize from those that do not, which bears on the question of which diasporas exacerbate conflict back in the homeland. We are building a dataset that will include every diasporic segment in the advanced democracies. Thus far, we have a partial dataset of groups within the United States. We develop some expectations of when we should see more or less mobilization and then test them against this preliminary dataset.
