Book description

With approximately 50 million people across the globe considered expatriates (persons living and working abroad for a limited time), global mobility is an important issue for individuals, organisations, and national governments, and a major research stream in universities and business schools. Written by a team of internationally renowned scholars from around the world, this volume summarises what is known about the management of global mobility and sets an agenda for future research. It also offers a comprehensive overview of the practical implications for organisations that manage expatriates, and individuals who are currently or aspiring expatriates. Providing an accessible and globally relevant introduction to the subject of expatriation and global mobility, this book will appeal to postgraduate, MBA, and EMBA students studying global mobility or international human resource management.  It will also be of interest to practitioners, such as human resource managers and global mobility managers, who would like to gain a better understanding of the expatriation process.


‘Global Mobility and the Management of Expatriates is a definitive volume for those interested in the study of global mobility. This comprehensive volume assembles the cutting-edge work from the leading experts in the field, making this book a must-read for students and practitioners in international human resource management.'

Paula Caligiuri - Distinguished Professor, International Business and Strategy, Northeastern University

‘This is an excellent and timely book that focuses on the important topic of managing expatriates in an environment of global mobility. With an impressive integration of research work, examples and case studies, it offers the reader an insight into how to handle one of the increasing trends of our time, and helps them navigate more successfully in the era of globalization and VUCA. This well-structured and thoughtfully organized book is suitable for scholars, professionals, and students who are interested in, or puzzled by, the complexity of multicultural organizational settings and the management of expatriates.'

Shuming Zhao - Nanjing University Senior Professor and Honorary Dean, School of Business, Nanjing University, China

'Global mobility is essential to the success of modern companies competing in a global marketplace. Whether through long or short term assignments, millions of traditional or self-initiated expatriates help their organizations understand and develop new markets, forge partnerships, navigate diverse regulatory and cultural landscapes, improve supply chains and advance new products. This book brings together the who-is-who among scholars in international human resource management and offers a must-read guide for managers and human resource professionals in successful globally minded corporations.'

Ángel Cabrera - President, Georgia Institute of Technology

'This book is a great collection of works on expatriates written by the top scholars in this field. Both academic researchers and practitioners will benefit from this book because it provides comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge of global mobility and the management of expatriates.'
