Abstract: Whereas scholarship on diasporas has expanded in tandem with research on globalization and migration in recent decades, the role of diasporas in international relations remains an understudied subject. In the field of IR, questions of transnationalism and national identity have mostly been approached through the lens of constructivism. In response to this, some scholars have urged for the return of the state in analyses of the role of diasporas in IR. James Jiann Hua To’s study of qiaowu or “Overseas Chinese (OC) affairs work” (huaqiao shiwu gongzuo) falls within the scope of the latter. As such, this is an attempt to offer a more updated and systematic approach to existing accounts of “qiaowu methodology” (p. 12), of which Stephen Fitzgerald’s China and the Overseas Chinese: A Study of Peking’s Changing Policy 1949-1970 (Cambridge University Press, 1972) is perhaps the most classic example
