    Abstract Transnational connections are a central component of diasporic communities. Diaspora members participate in transnational networks that link people in their country of origin, country of residence, and perhaps additional countries where members of the diaspora are present. Such connections are formed not only between individuals, but also between associations. When diasporic communities form associations, these associations contribute to the development of transnational networks that have economic, political, and social impact in both the country of origin and countries of residence. This policy report, based on case studies in Paris, Dakar and Tangier, considers the transnational connections between West African diaspora associations and how such connections can be facilitated to empower diaspora associations.
