Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the policies that states develop to cultivate links with, attract back, or integrate diaspora members in their country of origin, allegiance, or citizenship. It explains the Greek state policies toward diffferent repatriate groups in the 1990s and challenge the very definition of the right to "freedom of movement". The chapter focuses on a particular tension between human rights-in this case the right to freedom of movement-and selective incentives and privileges granted to certain groups of co-ethnics as part of a state repatriation policy. In many European citizens' minds 'repatriation' is currently closely associated with state policies to send illegal immigrants and refugees back to their country of origin. It also focuses on the population from the former Soviet Union; in particular, those who participated in the Repatriate Policy Program.
