Movement of Global Talent: The Impact of High Skill Labor Flows from India and China

To better understand the growing role of internationally mobile human capital on local and global politics and economies, this symposium examined the circulation of high-skilled ("knowledge") workers from India and China to and from the New Jersey-Pennsylvania-New York region, and its impact on the source countries and the receiving region. The symposium was composed of two sessions. The first session focused on how the flow of knowledge workers impacts India and China, source countries for the migration. This session was teleconferenced with partner institutions in India and China. The second session focused on how the flow of knowledge workers impacts the New Jersey-Pennsylvania-New York region.

The conference was also live-blogged, in partnership with the new media initiative PolicyNet, a web-based network of leading public policy schools around the world.
