Diaspora as an Archimedean Lever

As a device to identify and link exceptions: an Archimedean lever to triggerchange

Our individual propensity to sustain change follows a familiar Bell curve (normal distribution). Exceptions matter:

•the ‘worst’10%: these individuals would not change under any circumstances

•the best 10%: ‘sticky people’: those would push change under any circumstances. First movers driven by intrinsic motivation

Networks of talent abroad allow to identify the best 10% (‘sticky people’) both abroad and in the home countryand (crucially!) link them together. This creates an Archimedean lever to trigger change

Precisely because Diaspora is part of the home country, it can be a powerful vehicle to trigger and promote change in the home country: to promote reform inside-out
