Diaspora Diplomacy 

The Diaspora is one of the Pillars outlined in Kenya’s foreign policy. The Diaspora pillar aims to harness the diverse skills, expertise and potential of Kenyans living abroad, and facilitating their integration into the national development agenda.

The Government of Kenya recognizes the huge and untapped potential of Kenyans Abroad which can contribute to the country’s national development agenda. The Diaspora pillar aims to harness the diverse skills, knowledge, expertise and resources of Kenyans living abroad, and facilitating their integration into the national development agenda. This informs the Diaspora Pillar which seeks to harness the contribution of Kenyans living abroad through the implementation of the National Diaspora policy. The objectives of this pillar are to:

  • Provide effective and responsive consular services;
  • Facilitate Kenyans Abroad to participate in national development;
  • Promote the access by Kenyans to the international labour market;
