Digitalization and Diaspora, Nov. 8-9, 2019


A forum on Digitization and Diaspora. 
Organizers: Centre for International Migration and Development (CIM) -the competence centre for worldwide labour mobility in the international cooperation of the German Federal Government.


Digitalization is changing our lives. People and organizations, that are active in development cooperation, also benefit from new opportunities, for example in communication and networking with others. Digital tools offer the opportunity to shape commitment efficiently and maximize impact on the ground, regardless of location and time zone. However, it also poses many challenges, because digital applications not only need to be understood and mastered, they are also constantly changing and new ones are being added.
