Adjustment of Expatriates in the Baltic States

Description

Global mobility becomes more and more popular. In some countries, such as Germany this phenomena already exists for decades. However, for Baltic countries it is quite new. Therefore, it is important to introduce this phenomena more in those countries. Despite the plethora of career studies regarding mobility of expatriates as well as studies of diversity and inclusion in organizations we know very little about the organizational factors facilitating and impeding the adjustment of expatriates

The aim of this project is to organize a seminar "Possibilities and challenges of adjustment of expatriates in the Baltic states" where experience and practices on expatriates and the main challenges of their adjustment will be discussed and shared by scholars and practitioners. This would be the 1st step to share knowledge and to develop a pilot study on factors fostering adjustment of knowledge expatriates into local labour markets.
