Knowledge migration flows in education hubs: Mobile students enrolled at Indian and British branch campuses in the United Arab Emirates

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The provision of higher education is a key priority for countries around the world, given that knowledge production, innovation and skills are crucial for thriving societies and economies. Even though the number of university enrollments is forecast to rise by 21 million between 2011 and 2020, many countries are struggling to meet demand. Thus different types of knowledge migration are emerging, more students are studying abroad and institutions are establishing offshore branch campuses. Research has been conducted on international student migration and transnational education, but nothing is known about the intersection of these two literatures, i.e. instances when both students and institutions cross international borders. EduHubMig addresses the paucity on this topic through the study of international students enrolled at British and Indian branch campuses in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Statistical analyses of secondary data and an online survey will identify the characteristics and size of this under-studied young migrant group. In addition, a range of qualitative research methods, such as in-depth interviews with students and other stakeholders (n=130), an institutional ethnography of offshore universities and a netnography of the website materials and social media, will uncover the various ways in which different actors shape knowledge flows within education hubs. EduHubMig will enable the Experienced Researcher to develop important new research skills and enhance her career development. The project will provide intensive training and facilitate knowledge exchange between the Experienced Researcher and the colleagues at Utrecht University with whom she shares research interests. The training plan will be closely monitored by her supervisor and supported by dedicated academic and administrative colleagues. The research and excellent training integrated in EduHubMig will help the Experienced Researcher accomplish her career objective of a tenure-track position.

Labour Migration Policy Index (LMPI)

Year 2008
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The Labour Migration Policy Index (LMPI) aims to assess on a national level the mechanisms which allow employers to meet their labour needs, and which provide favourable conditions for migrant workers. The LMPI focuses on assessing the formal rules and regulations of labour migration programmes, as opposed to actual policy implementation and migration outcomes, which are more difficult to evaluate. The LMPI considers two fields of labour migration policy -- Administration and Entry Mechanisms, and Migrant Worker Entitlements. Each of these two fields is divided into two ‘macro indicators’, for example, ‘Administrative mechanisms’ and ‘Entry mechanisms’. The LMPI only assesses migration programmes in a limited number of countries. In order to ensure some geographical balance, research has been conducted on the following thirteen countries: Australia, Canada, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Spain, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Labour immigration and labour markets in the GCC countries: national patterns and trends

Authors Martin Baldwin-Edwards
Year 2011
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Using the latest statistical data from six GCC states and recent publications of the GCC Secretariat, a detailed profile is presented of immigration and employment across the region. Evaluation is made of the available data sources (listed in the appendix) and the actual extent of immigrant presence in both population and labour market is critically examined. Employment according to public/private sector, and also for fifteen economic sectors, is shown for each country (where available) by citizenship type and gender. Previously unpublished indicators, such as unemployment and participation rates, are calculated where possible by citizenship type, gender and age groups; a few countries provide data on actual nationalities or regional groupings of foreign employees, and these are reproduced here. Previously neglected issues that receive some attention are foreign births, family presence, foreign schoolchildren and duration of residence (the latter available only for the UAE). The emergence of the kafala system is examined in historical context; in particular, emphasis is placed on its role in promoting irregularities in the migration, residence and employment of foreigners across the GCC. Trends in government policies are described, including the recent and significant doubts in some countries about the ability of the kafala system to produce satisfactory outcomes. Some attention is paid to the important policies of nationalization’ of GCC labour markets: a conceptual categorization of such policies is made, according to five different policy objectives. Using both the broad and more detailed sectoral employment data previously presented, evaluation is then made of the degree of success of each country’s initiatives in this area. The paper concludes with an exposition of the commonalities and differences across the GCC in managing their labour markets and immigration. The structural specificities of each country are outlined, along with tentative prognoses of their future needs for immigrant workers.
