Somali Diaspora in Minnesota

The Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota published in December 2014 a policy report titled "The Somali Diaspora in the Twin Cities: Engagement and Implications for Return" by Ryan Allen, Carissa Slotterback, Kadra Abdi, and Ahmed Muhumud. 

Somalis living in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, are returning to Somalia with greater frequency.  Because of the fragile nature of the situation in Somalia, the visits tend to be temporary.  The limited social infrastructure such as health care helps to explain their reluctance to return permanently.
