Introduction: Chinese Returnees in Context

Part of the Politics and Development of Contemporary China book series (PDCC)


In reviewing globalization, David Held et al. (1999: 283) state that “one form of globalization is more ubiquitous than any other—human migration.” Globalization leads to the transfer of new skills, knowledge, ideas and capital across national boundaries, particularly the increased international mobility of talented and highly qualified individuals. Talent circulation, which is more widely referred to as brain circulation, is the term generically used to describe movement of highly skilled immigrants who live and work in a foreign country for a certain length of time before returning home or moving to another foreign country.
