Global Mobility, Local Economy: It’s Work Psychology, Stupid!

  • Stuart C. Carr
Part of the International and Cultural Psychology book series (ICUP)


Local economies are present at the beginning, middle and end of global mobility. So too is the workplace. A neglected stimulus to emigrate from lower-income settings is the derisory remuneration that many skilled Indigenous professionals receive, compared to imported expatriate counterparts. As economic new settlers too, however, they can face discriminatory job selection practices, becoming under-employed. Those with most persistence and other capabilities may choose to stay abroad, distorting which competencies return home. These stages in the journey of many skilled new settlers expose the “migration-development nexus” as rhetoric rather than reality. This chapter responds to calls in the 2009 Human Development Report from the United Nations Development Programme which argues for a fresh, inter-disciplinary approach to overcoming precisely these kinds of barriers to human development.
