This broadening of the conception of diaspora to admit those arising from voluntary as well as enforced migration demonstrates that these communities are composed of like members. In fact diasporas often result from different migrations so that members seldom exhibit homogeneous attitudes to the homeland or its government (Shain 1993). Consequently, diasporas encompass a range of members from political exiles and highly mobilised activists to those almost assimilated into the host culture, a composition which is subject to transformation by new migrations and changes in the perceptions of its members.
