Scholars from various disciplines at Dutch academic institutions have displayed an interest in the topic of highly skilled migration. During this seminar, questions will be posed as to why European and national policy with regard to highly skilled migration is set up the way it is, whether there is room for policy improvement, and, if so, how this could be achieved. Which patterns of highly skilled migration can be identified? Which incentives can regions implement to attract highly skilled migrants? What do we know about the interaction between highly skilled migrants and the social structures within their companies, cities, regions or nations?
The annual DAMR spring meeting took place on Thursday 28 May 2015. The meeting was organised in cooperation with the Leiden Interdisciplinary Migration Seminars (LIMS). The theme of the meeting was 'Child and Migration'. The programme will include senior researchers from different disciplines who will reflect on this theme and junior researchers who will reflect on their presentations.
