'Talented' citizens?: study-migration policies in traditional immigration and higher education destinations


Project Summary:

This is the preliminary phase of a larger project on high skilled labour migration (including postsecondary international student migration), and the shifting nature of national membership in our world dominated by knowledge economic discourses. In this phase a comparative review of various study-migration policies of Canada, Australia, USA, UK and Germany, all introduced in response to the global race for professional talent, will be conducted. This review will build the foundation for the second phase of the study where I plan to explore postsecondary international students’ experience of navigating and making sense of the increasing entanglement between higher education and immigration policies of the aforementioned states, which construct them as 'knowledge diplomats' and 'ideal immigrants' but also maintains a gap between their economic welcome and political disenfranchisement.
