*The University of Guyana (UG) will host its inaugural Diaspora Engagement
Conference from July 23 to 28 2017, in Georgetown, Guyana, under the theme:
“Dreaming Diaspora Engagement, Doing Diaspora Engagement.” The six-day
conference will take place at the Ramada Georgetown Princess Hotel,
Providence, East Bank Demerara, Guyana. The deadline for submitting
abstracts is March 14, 2017. [Many thanks to Humberto García Muñiz for
bringing this item to our attention.]*

*Description*: The theme, Dreaming Diaspora Engagement - Doing Diaspora
Engagement, has been chosen in recognition of the fact that much has been
said in the last two or three decades about the potential of the diaspora
in national and regional development. Indeed many Caribbean countries have
introduced policies and programmes aimed at mainstreaming their diaspora
into nationals and regional growth and development. There, however remains
a need for more dialogue and investigation into how the various policies
and intents can be actualized.

The conference will host a number of panels, business roundtables and
multimedia presentations on key thematic issue areas such as: Identify
issues in the Caribbean Diaspora Experience; Best practices in diaspora
engagement; The role of Hometown Associations; Remittances and beyond;
Diaspora trade, exports and tourism; Business opportunities for diaspora
investment; The Caribbean Diasporic Community in the 21st century; Imaging
and imagining the Diaspora; The Role of the Diaspora as Brand Ambassadors;
and Launching Guyana's Diaspora Engagement Strategy.

*Guidelines*: There would be 3 - 4 presenters in every session.
Presentations will be limited to 15 minutes each. An abstract of up to 250
words should be submitted on or before March 14, 2017.

Acceptance letters for proposals will be e-mailed by April 14, 2017.

Presenters should indicate if their formal presentations will be in
PowerPoint format.

An executive summary of the paper (2-3 pages) must be submitted no later
than June 16, 2017.

Send proposals (include name, address, contact details, institutional
affiliation) along with short bio to:

Dr. Fitzgerald Yaw, Chairman, Editorial Committee
