Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is to analyze state-diaspora relations, using Montenegro as an example. The literature on the topic shows a visible lack of thorough studies of this phenomenon. Montenegro is an interesting case, since the number of people living in diasporas is comparable to the total population of the state. The article is divided into four parts. Part one presents theoretical consideration of the diaspora, as well as the state-diaspora relations. Part two features a brief characterization of the diasporas in Montenegro, its history and migration directions. Part three is an analysis of relations between Montenegro and the diaspora. Particular attention is given to the process of institutionalization of these relations. The article ends with conclusions.
