The International diaspora Engagement Alliance (IdEA)   IdEA is an innovative platform for public-private partnerships designed to engage diaspora communities, the private sector, and public institutions in a collaborative process. The goal is to support the development of diaspora-centered partnerships that promote trade and investment, volunteerism, philanthropy, diplomacy, entrepreneurship, and innovation in countries of origin.  The Secretary of State’s Office of the Global Partnership Initiative (GPI), in collaboration with the Migration Policy Institute (MPI), launched the International diaspora Engagement Alliance (IdEA) at the first ever Secretary’s Global Diaspora Forum over three days (May 17-19, 2011) in Washington, D.C.
