This programme favors collaborative learning. Participants are requested to actively contribute to discussions, asking critical questions, commenting on ideas raised in this programme, and cooperating with others in the completion of the assignments. The course thus makes each participant a consultant to all the others.

Participants are encouraged to work on proposals that they can immediately use in their own daily work environment and to discuss those issues.

The assignments thus help to elaborate concrete plans and shed light on concrete examples from the perspectives of different countries and different institutions. They are not just exercises; they should be concrete steps towards an increased productivity and income of family, friend, and neighbours in the countries were members of the diaspora come from.
