revised version published in: Artal-Tur/Peri/Requena-Silvente (Eds.),The Socio-Economic Impact of Migration Flows - Springer: 2014
Recent changes in information and communication technologies (ICT) have contributed to a dramatic increase in the integration and interdependence of countries, markets and people. This paper focuses on an increasingly important aspect of globalization, the international movement of people, with emphasis on the mobility of skilled people. This issue is of great concern for the many small states that experience huge brain drain levels.
