Globalisation and social transformation theorists have paid significantly less attention to the movement of people than they have to the movement of capital. This book redresses the balance and provides timely insights into recent developments in return skilled migration in four regions in the Asia Pacific - Bangladesh, China, Taiwan and Vietnam. The authors believe that the movement of skilled migrants, and the tacit knowledge they bring with them, is a vital component in the process of globalisation. The authors examine the patterns and processes of return migration and the impacts it can have on migrants, their families and communities (including gender relations), as well as the effects on both the original source country and the host country. They highlight the many considerations which can influence the decision to return home, including social factors, career-related prospects, and the economic and political environment. Government policies in facilitating return migration through the promotion of entrepreneurship, education and training can also play a crucial role. In the long term, fears of a `brain drain', under certain circumstances, may be replaced by the prospect of a `brain gain' or `global brain circulation', where emigration and immigration (or return migration) co-exist and are supplemented by short-term circulatory movements as a country becomes more integrated into the global economy. This is a pioneering comparative study of return migration in the Asia Pacific based on original primary data. Researchers, academics and students interested in migration, globalisation, demography and social transformation will find this a valuable and highly rewarding book.

Review:

`This edited volume is timely and is probably the first to survey the increasingly prominent phenomenon of return skilled migration in the Asia Pacific. Comprising country-specific studies on Bangladesh, China, Taiwan, and Vietnam, the various contributors seek to capture the nuances of the `brain drain reversal' and the impact on their home economies as well as the host countries. . . The value of this volume also lies in its being empirically rich. The use of primary data involving a conscious engagement with common methodology and a comparative perspective allows for a `common language' with which to make comparisons and longitudinal assessments on the developing patterns and trends of return migration.' -- Eugene K.B. Tan, Ethnic and Racial Studies `There are few studies on return migration in general and even fewer on migrants who have returned to their home countries in the Asian and Pacific region. Much is heard about "brain drain" but much less about "brain drain reversal". This book is to be welcomed as the first multi-country study to be published on the return of skilled and business migrants and the impact that they can have on their home economies in Asia and the Pacific. That impact is shown to be various and to change over time, the contributions clearly varying depending upon the nature of the environments to which the migrants have returned. The book presents valuable material from Bangladesh, China, Taiwan and Viet Nam, together with a contextual analysis of migrant communities from these economies in Australia.' -- Ronald Skeldon, University of Sussex, UK
