The development question has entered African history with the colonization process and has assumed new declinations during the decolonization and the independence period, overlapping with migration and diaspora issues. In recent years African diaspora is considered a central actor for the development of the source countries and for the whole continent. The article proposes a critical review of different forms of migrants’ transnational contribution to the improvement of African contexts and shares some final considerations around the future of this international actor in the cooperation and globalization processes.
