Abstract:Ethiopia hosts migrants and produces migrants; it hosts diasporas and produces diasporas. It is precisely at that interface between Ethiopia and its diasporas, within and without, that this special issue of 'African Diaspora' is situated. Each of the papers offers an insight into a particular relationship that gives shape to the interface between Ethiopia and its diasporas. The concomitant pull and push factors related to the dispersal, the various significances accorded to homeland and host land, the interplay between identity and representations, and the simultaneous dynamics of solidarity and exclusion illustrated by the empirical material illustrate the relationality at the core of diasporas.
