Abstract [en]

This Master thesis research aims at finding out the experiences and motivations of the Rwandan diaspora in a leading or following working position in their country of origin. This study draws on a qualitative research design and in-depth, semi-structured interviews. This research also looks into the role of belongingness and identity of the diaspora as leaders and followers. Themes such as (intercultural) communication and cultural diversity are also explored. The respondents come from different parts of the world and are now leaders and followers in Rwanda, their country of origin, it is their experiences that are drawn.

The research shows that the reasons for the diaspora to return to their ethnic homeland differ from individual to individual. While some of the respondents of this research have returned for the pursuit of better economic opportunities, others have returned because of the emotional ties with the ethnic homeland and because of a sense of belonging.
