Competing for global talents: China's brain gain strategies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Recent literature on globalization and international academic mobility has noticed the ability of individuals – especially highly-skilled personnel with marketable expertise – to move freely in the international labour market (Saxenian, 2002), and therefore the intensified worldwide competition for “brain gain”, i.e., governments’ “attempts, efforts, programs, and projects aimed to draw scientific workers to a given country” (Jalowiecki & Gorzelak, 2004, p. 299).
