Contributor(s): Tejada, Gabriela [Editor] | Bhattacharya, Uttam [Editor] | Khadria, Binod [Editor] | Kuptsch, Christiane [Editor].
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Dynamics of Asian Development. Publisher: New Delhi Springer 2014Description: xxi, 332 p.ISBN: 9788132218098.Subject(s): Migration | Population economics | Regional and cultural studies | Social policy - Public economicsDDC classification: 304.80954 Summary: This edited contribution explores strategies and measures for leveraging the potential of skilled diasporas and for advancing knowledge-based evidence on return skilled migration and its impact on development. By taking the example of Indian skilled migration, this study identifies ways of involving returned skilled migrants in home country development as well as proposes approaches to engage the diaspora in development. As high-skill immigration from India to mainland Europe is a rather recent phenomenon, the activities of Indian professionals in Europe are under-researched. The findings have wider application in contributing to the policy dialogue on migration and development, specifically to the advantage for developing and emerging economies. The book employs an interdisciplinary, two-fold approach: The first part of the research looks at how international exposure affects the current situation of skilled returnees in India. The second, European, part of the research examines migration policies, labour market regulations and other institutional settings that enable or hinder skilled Indians’ links with the country of origin. Structural differences between the host countries may facilitate different levels of learning opportunities; thus, this book identifies good practices to promote the involvement of Indian skilled diaspora in socio-economic development. In applying the framework of diaspora contributions as well as the return channel to study the impact on India, the book draws on qualitative and quantitative research methods consisting of policy analysis, in-depth interviews with key experts and skilled migrants and on data sets collected specifically for this study. http://www.springer.com/gp/book/9788132218098
