The origin and changing use of the concept of diaspora is considered and its importance to the understanding of many forms of international migration, despite its specific reference to the history of the Jews, is discussed. The different types of diaspora and the diverse ways in which the concept is used are also identified. The response of modern nation-states to the challenge of social and cultural pluralism is also discussed.
