The Global Diaspora Week (GDW) is a week dedicated to diaspora communities and their contributions to global development. The event aims at creating awareness, enabling collaboration and enhancing learning amongst those working with diaspora communities.

Organised by the African Diaspora Network (ADNE) and with the collaboration of the European Institutions, the Global Diaspora Week will be celebrated on the 5 October 2018 in Brussels.

Initiated in Europe in 2015, the GDW provides a space where innovative projects are presented and a whole-week debate between the Diaspora and State Actors and development agents from Europe and Africa is organised to discuss the role of the Diaspora in the economic development of home countries and host countries.

ADEPT, represented by its President, Khady Sakho Niang, will take part in the conversation. The full programme is available here
