Diasporas – communities which live outside, but maintain links with, their homelands are getting larger, thicker and stronger.
They are the human face of globalization.
Diaspora consciousness is on the rise: Diasporas are becoming more interested in their origins, and organising themselves more effectively; homelands are revising their opinions of their diasporas as the stigma attached to emigration declines, and stepping up their engagement efforts; meanwhile, host countries are witnessing more assertive diasporic groups within their own national communities, worrying about fifth columns and foreign lobbies, and suffering outbreaks of ‘diasporaphobia’.
This trend is the result of five factors, all of them connected with globalisation: the growth in international migration; the revolution in transport and communications technology, which is quickening the pace of diasporans’ interactions with their homelands; a reaction against global homogenised culture, which is leading people to rethink their identities; the end of the Cold War, which increased the salience of ethnicity and nationalism and created new space in which diasporas can operate;这一趋势是五个因素的结果，所有这些因素都与全球化有关：国际移徙的增长；运输和通信技术革命，这场革命加快了侨民与其祖国的互动步伐；对全球同质化文化的反应，这种文化正导致人们重新思考自己的身份；冷战的结束，使种族和民族主义更加突出，并为侨民的活动创造了新的空间；And policy changes by national governments on issues such as dual citizenship and multiculturalism, which are enabling people to lead transnational lives.
Diasporas such as those attaching to China, India, Russia and Mexico are already big, but they will continue to grow; the migration flows which feed them are likely to widen and quicken in the future散居在中国、印度、俄罗斯和墨西哥等地的人口已经很大，但仍将继续增长；为他们提供食物的移民流动在未来可能会扩大和加快。
Due to the growth in international migration, the revolution in transport and communications technology, a reaction against globally homogenized culture and the end of cold war, which are all connected with globalization, communities which live outside but maintain links with their homelands are increasingly big and strong; therefore, policy changes are made by national governments, the communities will continue to grow, and the migration flows may widen and quicken in the future.
