Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungDrawing on the work of a long-standing discussion group at the Center for Comparative and Global Research of UCLAs International Institute, contributions to The Human Face of Global Mobility explore the reality behind assumptions about new global migration trends. Articles challenge widely held views about the elite characteristics of these migrants, the costs and consequences of the brain drain said to follow from the migration of skilled workers, the determinants of national policies on high skilled migrants, and the presumed effortlessness of professional mobility in an integrating world. The volume also sheds new light on international student migration, the politics of temporary, non-immigrant workers in the United States, new international forms of regulating movement, and realities of everyday lives of multinational employees in the worlds transnational cities.
