Abstract: The impact of the diaspora on the development of the state of origin is a topic that appeared relatively recently in the areas of interest and on the public agendas of the states. Currently, throughout the world, the diaspora represents an active force, involved in almost all areas of activity of a society, which tends to develop and maintain multilateral ties with political, social and cultural institutions in the country of origin or destination. Since the 1990s, more and more states have launched various initiatives at the governmental level in order to attract the development potential of the diaspora. However, often factors such as the availability of institutional means, available time, the needs, desires and capacities of diaspora members to engage in such activities, reduce the panoply of viable options regarding the state's implementation of diaspora-related development objectives. The given article aims to summarize the ways of interaction of the states of origin with the diasporas, to identify the opportunities and challenges of the various policies implemented in the field of the diaspora and to structure examples of good practices applied at the international and national level.
