ABSTRACT: While a solid body of research exists on the positive economic impact of Diasporas, less attention has been paid concerning the potential role of Diasporas as meaningful change agents in the social, cultural and intellectual aspects of Development in a nation. This paper examines the successful use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and other Knowledge Management (KM) techniques by some Diasporas. ICT and KM are not only tools used to bring together members of a Diaspora, but can act as mechanisms that in turn have impact upon the political, social, cultural and economic fabric of the “mother” nation.
