The present book investigates the Armenia-Diaspora
relations since Armenia regained its independence in
1991 with the aim of understanding and explaining
the different patterns and intensity of Diaspora's
engagement in Armenia in terms of attracting foreign
direct investments to the homeland. It analyzes
economic, cultural and political realities as
factors influencing Diaspora's investment
performance. It is argued that major cultural and
identity gaps within the Diaspora and in relations
to Armenia shaped predominantly by their experience
of migration, and affected by host country
characteristics have defined their perception
towards the homeland and to a large degree
determined the extent of their inclination towards
homeland investment. Important peculiarities of
Armenia's transition economy and government policies
as well as nuances of Armenian identity have been
identified as fundamental in determining the degree
and type of Diaspora involvement in the homeland.
The book is aimed at anyone with an interest in
Diaspora-Homeland relations with a particular
emphasis on foreign direct investments.
