AmeriCymru recently received the following communication from Joseph Alajemba at the Welsh Centre for International Affairs:-
I am writing to you as the Diaspora Research Intern at the Welsh Centre for International Affairs. The Welsh Centre for International Affairs (WCIA) is a charity and a national forum for the exchange of ideas on international issues, based in Cardiff, Wales. It seeks to promote international understanding and to engage people in Wales with international issues. The WCIA works with organisations across Wales on its projects and is keen to increase engagement and dialogue on international issues with diaspora communities in Wales and Welsh communities and organisations outside Wales. To this end, as a representative of a Welsh association/organisation outside Wales we hope that you can help us complete this research by:
This will enable us to learn more about the lives and interests of members of Welsh communities living outside of Wales; their migratory patterns, their history and their thoughts on being Welsh as well as their geographical locations and numbers. The overall aims of the research project are:
- Distributing the questionnaire to your members to complete as well which they can then email back directly to us.
1. To map out Welsh Diaspora groups/communities living outside Wales and diaspora communities living across Wales
2. To develop an understanding on how the WCIA could engage with these communities to promote a wider, more global Welsh perspective and voice on international issues
The questionnaire only takes a minute or two to fill out. If you've got a bit of spare time on your hands please help the WCIA with their research.
