Tapping the Indian Diaspora for Indian Development
AbstractThis study examines how Indian immigrants in the US have impacted Indian development. The vast majority of Indian immigrants in the US are said to provide individual funds to various causes and family members in India. These linkages are, however, extremely diffuse and informal and, therefore, variable and difficult to study empirically. To explore the more formal, sustained transnational linkages occurring between the Indian dispora and the US, this study uses US-based organizations that are founded and led by Indians as the primary lens. This study complements similar studies being conducted by Min Zhou (University of California-Los Angeles) on Chinese immigrants, Jennifer Huynh (Princeton University) on Vietnamese immigrants, and Alejandro Portes (Princeton University) on immigrants from Colombia, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. In all these countries, the impact of diaspora populations on national development has long existed and has been consistently understudied.
