A Europe of Diasporas “We understand “diasporas of Europe” to be enduring human networks and communities [...]. While the individuals are citizens of the European Union and consider themselves part of Europe, of its culture and destiny, they also have important formal and informal links with fellow ethnic or religious communities with whom they share a past, present and future. Diaspora communities are thus a part of several overlapping identities, alongside national, European and other layers of belonging.” “European Citizenship should serve as a substantial link between diasporas and the European project, giving the possibility to diasporas to affirm themselves within the European context. We invite all concerned to develop projects promoting cooperation between diaspora networks, and between them and public authorities in all fields. We will in particular promote the creation of a Forum of European Diasporas in the spirit of this declaration and invite all interested to join us in this venture.” From the Barcelona declaration on European Diasporas, 2005
