  2. Moving People and Knowledge

    Moving People and Knowledge

    Louise Ackers, Bryony Gill
    Moving People and Knowledge provides a fresh examination of the processes of highly skilled science migration. Focusing on intra-European mobility and, in particular, on the new dynamics of East–West migration, the authors investigate the movement of Polish and Bulgarian researchers to and from the UK and Germany. Key questions include: who is moving, how long for, and why? In addressing the motivations and experiences of mobile scientists and their families, insights into professional and personal motivations are provided, demonstrating how relationships, networks and infrastructures shape decision-making. This book provides a useful perspective on the implications of increasing researcher mobility – for both sending and receiving regions and the individuals concerned – which is necessary for the construction of future policies on sustainable scientific development.

  8. Return Migration in the Asia Pacific

    Return Migration in the Asia Pacific

    Edited by Robyn Iredale, Fei Guo, Santi Rozario
    Globalisation and social transformation theorists have paid significantly less attention to the movement of people than they have to the movement of capital. This book redresses the balance and provides timely insights into recent developments in return skilled migration in four regions in the Asia Pacific – Bangladesh, China, Taiwan and Vietnam. The authors believe that the movement of skilled migrants, and the tacit knowledge they bring with them, is a vital component in the process of globalisation. Learn More

  11. Economic Growth, Inequality and Migration

    Economic Growth, Inequality and Migration

    Edited by Amnon Levy, João R. Faria
    During the growth process inequality may rise or decline, and the change in the level of inequality may, in turn, affect growth. An increase in inequality in one place and better prospects of growth and earnings elsewhere can trigger migration. As a result of these close affecting links between factors, each of the eighteen studies – a mix of both theoretical and empirical – is concerned with at least two of these issues, and is classified into one of three general parts in accordance with the theme that is mostly emphasised.

    Robyn Iredale, Naren Bilik, Wang Su, Fei Guo, Caroline Hoy
    Rural–urban migration is an important aspect in the development of countries.

The gradual relaxation of these policies has resulted in greater freedom of movement for the population, the effects of which are discussed in this significant volume. Learn More
