International migration analysis often focuses on mass migration rather than on the international mobility of elites, which is the focus of this chapter. The chapter offers a three-fold classification of elites: (a) knowledge elites, (b) entrepreneurial elites and (c) political elites. The chapter explores the concept of elites and their main motivation to move across nations and review indirect empirical evidence relevant to this type of mobility, highlighting some channels through which elites can affect international development.
