Chinese Returnees from Overseas Study: An Understanding of Brain Gain and Brain Circulation in the Age of Globalization
Ma, Yuping; Pan, Suyan
Frontiers of Education in China, v10 n2 p306-329 2015
Among discussions on international academic mobility, a persistent challenge is to understand whether education abroad can become a source of brain gain, and whether globalization can offer source countries the hope that they might enjoy the benefits of freer crossborder flows in information and personnel. With reference to China, this article provides an understanding of these two issues. It reveals practical factors affecting returnees' decision to return, their contribution to specific areas, and obstacles that limit their contribution and career opportunities. In addition, it sheds light on an emerging brain circulation between China and foreign countries, along with the increased crossborder flow of academic talent from and into China.
