Abstract

The worldwide race to attract student talent is getting tougher for universities all over the world. The US has been leading the race, with its ability to attract PhD candidates and graduates from emerging countries and from the European Union. This book provides an overview of how a growing number of countries have adopted immigration policies specifically aimed at selecting and attracting skilled workers and examines the consequences of brain drain for the sending countries. Karin Mayr finds the book offers a valuable collection of academic contributions on this increasingly contested immigration phenomenon.
