Diaspora: historial experience or scientific concept? On the currency of a notion in the social sciences
Krings discusses the notion of diaspora and concludes that there is no "final" definition of the term in the social sciences yet. He proposes to use the concept to designate a "specific transnational form of community" and to further develop and qualify the notion, and he also names specific tasks in anthropology to do so.
