The chapter briefly describes recent trends in international migration, with a particular focus on highly skilled workers. It argues that although highly skilled workers are more internationally mobile than less skilled ones, skilled migration is still a small phenomenon compared to other facets of globalization. However, more and more countries are redesigning their immigration systems to make them more skill-selective. It also clarifies the purpose of the study, that is to examine the causes and consequences of skilled migration from the point of view of the receiving countries and to discuss the upcoming international battle for talents. The organization of the chapters is presented.

Keywords:   migration, selective migration policy, highly skilled migrants, migration trends
