3.2 International Migrants in Business
International migration has a strong and increasing impact on our societies, including businesses. Yet, business research into the implications of this global megatrend is scattered across many subfields, from individual-level work on migrant entrepreneurs and cosmopolitans to labor market and competitiveness outcomes such as brain drain at regional, national and supranational level. At the firm level, research on expatriation, diversity management, and global talent pools also engage with key aspects of international migration. This track aims to provide a forum for dialogue, integration and mutual learning across these fields to better understand the business-related challenges of international migration.
