Abstract

At first, the word Diaspora was more associated with the existence of the Greeks who were driven from their countries and lived scattered in various parts of the earth. Gradually the meaning of the word Diaspora extends, not only to the existence of the Greeks. The word Diaspora can be use for natives brought to their colonies, such as Indonesians who went to the Netherlands during the colonial period. Globalization facilitates the mobility of diaspora, for example, by studying and working abroad or marrying foreign citizens. Based on data from the Indonesian Embassy in London in 2011, Malaysia was ranked third with the most significant number of Indonesian students with a total of 13627. How did the Indonesian diaspora in Malaysia play a role in maintaining national defense?
