The global refugee crisis brings pressing concerns how to manage refugees on the move and deal with fragile sending states in conflict and disarray. While such concerns take the limelight, long-term effects of refugee and large-scale migration movements remain in the shadow. Over time refugees may return home, but many will remain in their new destinations, or move on to others, and eventually turn into conflict-generated diasporas with durable links to their original homelands.

Conflict-generated diasporas can be a source of economic development, but also of further conflict from afar, and engage in a variety of long-distance practices. Lessons learned from experiences of previous refugee waves, their diaspora engagement, and the management of large-scale migration, including fragile and developing states, can inform meaningful policies towards refugees and migrants today.
