Abstract

Recent encouragement of skilled immigration is mostly explained by the changing needs of the Swiss economy. However, access to the labor market differs not only according to foreigners' level of skills, but also according to their country of origin, mode of entry, and field of specialization. The aim of this project is to reflect on the notion of highly skilled migrant by (1) analyzing its role in Switzerland, (2) observing the strategies of highly educated migrants to access better life prospects and, (3) investigating their influence on today's society.
