  • Description
    [Excerpt from authors] This report examines the trends and policy issues relating to the international mobility of one key group of knowledge workers- nurses. The increase in 'knowledge worker' migration, partly as a result of developed countries attempting to solve skill shortages by recruiting from developing countries, is a key component of current international migration patterns.
