The chapter views migration of skills from a perspective of new industrial policy. It introduces two types of search networks: open migration chains and diaspora networks. Migration chains are sequences of educational or job opportunities which allows a migrant to move to progressively complex educational and job tasks necessary to work in the global environment. Diaspora networks are networks of members seeking to advance their collective goals, often (but not necessarily) for the benefits of home countries. Open migration chains are functional equivalent to value chains: they emphasize upgrading of individual human capital. ‘Diaspora networks’ are about concerted action and clubs. They can be viewed as tools to upgrade open migration chains exactly the same way as a supplier development programme is a concerted action to upgrade value chains.

Keywords:   economic development, diaspora networks, search networks, serendipity, job opportunities, migration chains
