In Ancient Greek language, the term:”διασπορ?” meant dispersion or scattering. Previously, the term Diaspora was used by Greeks to designate the Greek citizens migrating to a colonized country.
Afterwards, the word Diaspora was referring to people who came and settled in foreign countries because of many factors, such as war or looking for a better life. Nowadays, in globalization era, the terms Diaspora also became an emerging economy for a nation and the word “perantau” has been changed into Diaspora.
