in diaspora by transporting clanism at the destination country - curbing potential for collective development. " Capitalizing on the diaspora o Perceptions of the diaspora are strong – are they valid? If the diaspora helps us more, we will succeed in creating income and jobs for everyone (Director, Manufacture, Bossasso) o Support diaspora entrepreneurship – by encouraging access to capital for young and small-scale entrepreneurs, establishing platforms that encourage regular dialogues between youth and diaspora professionals ! Successes and failures? SUCCESS, FAILURES and OPPORTUNITIES Context is important to bear in mind as although there are good practices, there is a need to consider ' Best fit NOT best Practices' , E.G. Programmes rolled out in other African countries which have been successful will need to be contextualised to suit the Somali situation; FAILURES USAID has developed an initiative which is 'Bond Matching', the basic concept being that the youth in Somalia develop a business plan which they pitch and USAID finds a number of diasporans who are willing to fund the initiative to set up the business that way there is a partnership established between the diaspora and the Somali youth; MIDA programme has been adopting a few strategies to harness the potential of the diaspora but at the same time allow for transfer of skills through skills matching (i.e. Working with one diaspora and two local Somali youth.

This will contribute to the development of businesses that may create employment opportunities for the youth but also improve livelihoods ( Need to find out more details on this). Workshop 3: INCLUDING VULNERABLE GROUPS " Returnees o Who are ‘the returnees’? How can their education be capitalized upon? Returnees are at an advantage on education requirements. o What explains returnees’ lower level of debts? Are there lessons learned to draw for other migrant groups? On average 6% less than others, around 11- 12% of them are in debt. o How to prevent returnees from unwanted displacement? “Many returnees come back to their homeland where they join the ranks of those moving internally, from rural to urban areas, for economic reasons and for search of greater stability and opportunities.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
