Skilled Immigration Today

Prospects, Problems, and Policies

Edited by Jagdish Bhagwati and Gordon Hanson

Skilled immigration into rich countries and competition for talent and professional skills are of major concern among nations today. How important is this phenomenon? How do the legal-immigration systems of rich countries address this need? What are the implications on the sending countries, which are generally less developed, when rich countries admit skilled professionals from them? These and a host of related policy questions are addressed uniquely in Skilled Immigration Today. Bhagwati and Hanson present an informed awareness of the rich historical analysis of the phenomenon and several policy initiatives already attempted with sophisticated theoretical analysis. The essays, with an overview that ties them together, are written by today's foremost immigration experts.
