On April 24, 2018, the Africa-Europe Diaspora Development Platform (ADEPT) in partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Senegalese Abroad, the ‘Direction Générale des Sénégalais de l’Extérieur’ (DGSE) and the ‘Coordination des Associations Sénégalaises de la Catalogne’ (CASC), organised the Eight Diaspora Development Dialogue (DDD8) from the 24th to the 27th of April 2018 at the Jardin Savana Hotel (Pointe Bernard – Petite Corniche) in Dakar, Senegal.

The Dialogue focused on expanding and enhancing the role of Diaspora Parliamentarians and gathered together directors and practitioners from diaspora affairs, parliamentarians, government officials, high-level institutions, African and European diplomats, organisations at national and international level, academics, policymakers, researchers, businesses, diaspora and civil society organisations to discuss the role of the Diaspora Parliamentarians in strengthening their political activity and civic engagement.

Delegates from 10 African and European countries attended an intensive four-day Diaspora Development Dialogue programme available here.
