Interview 3

The term diaspora does not have a single definition. However, this is not uncommon in the social sciences. Anthropologists do not provide a unique definition for culture, neither do sociologists for society, nor do scholars on nationalism studies for nation. The concept of diaspora started to be used in an increasingly broader sense in the 1960s–70s, as a result of which its original religious-meaning content has now been extended to refer to almost all kinds of dispersed communities.
