about this item

In today’s global knowledge economy, competition for the best and brightest workers has intensified. Highly skilled workers are an asset to companies, knowledge institutions, cities, and regions as they contribute to knowledge creation, innovation, and economic growth and development. Skilled migrants cross, and many times straddle, international borders to pursue professional opportunities. These spatial relocations provide opportunities and challenges for migrants and the cities and regions that they inhabit.

Geographers and other social scientists have studied these topics but gaps of knowledge still exist. How have international skilled migratory flows been formed, sustained and transformed over multiple spaces and scales? How have these processes affected the places (such as cities and regions) and actors that are involved in international skilled migration? And how have policymakers and other decision makers responded to these processes? The contributors to this book analyse these questions from a myriad of angles.
