Official estimates show that the total number of people originating from Bosnia and Herzegovina (BIH) in the world (including their offspring) is approximately 2 million. Most of them retain a strong emotional, financial, and familial connection with BIH. They are also well integrated and better off than other migrant communities in their host countries, with potential and willingness to contribute to development of their homeland. However, the interaction with them is sporadic and unstructured. Diaspora is rarely included or consulted in the design of policies or decision-making processes. Hence, the valuable intellectual capital and other potential contribution of diaspora, which can help addressing country challenges or promoting BIH globally, remains largely untapped. Against this background, the overall Project goal is to increase socio-economic opportunities and perspectives for women and men in BIH, and to improve their livelihoods through increased diaspora engagement. This will be attained through achieving three specific outcomes:
Ministry of Human Rights and Refugees and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of BIH, in cooperation with government institutions at different levels, use and further develop their instruments to actively connect, exchange, and engage with diaspora members and organisations.
Municipalities align their development strategies to the BIH Diaspora Strategy, provide more and better services to diaspora members, and encourage community initiatives to attract diaspora know-how and investment.
Diaspora partners transfer know-how and skills and make joint investments with private sector actors in BIH, thus creating new jobs.
The project is supported by the Government of Switzerland and implemented by UNDP and IOM, in partnership with the Ministry of Human Rights and Refugees.
