There are common challenges faced by stakeholders working with diasporas such as lack of trust, difficulties regarding fundraising and sustainability of initiatives in the long-term.
 
The 2021 Global Exchanges thus aim to gather experts on these topics to provide information on how to overcome common challenges faced by stakeholders engaging in transnational initiatives. By providing concrete strategies on how to build trustworthy relationships, find resources and funding and develop long-term strategies, stakeholders will be able to boost their transnational initiatives.
 
Objectives of the three 2021 Global Exchanges: 
Continue contributing to the self-mobilization and empowerment of diasporas by providing a space for sharing, coordination, and collaboration between different diaspora communities around the world.
Analyze and provide insights to self-identified common challenges such as trust, fundraising and sustainability.
Identify key lessons and best practices on the three key topics that will help global diasporas facing similar challenges to overcome them.
 
The first Global Exchange to be held in collaboration with GRFDT, CISAN and ADEPT on the 27th of April from 16.00 to 18.00 CEST will focus on building trust to maximize diaspora engagement.  
 
The purpose of this event is to unpack the different dimensions of trust in diaspora engagement. Stakeholders will be invited to provide thoughts on this topic from their perspectives and experiences.
 
Discussions will be centred around the following questions: 
Why is trust relevant in diaspora engagement and how can stakeholders and diaspora communities maximize it?  
How do stakeholders working on diaspora engagement build trust at the local, national, regional and international levels?  
What works best in strengthening mutual trust among the different stakeholders working in diaspora engagement?
