Resumen

TIGAU, Camelia. Conflict-Induced Displacement of Skilled Refugees: A Cross-Case Analysis of Syrian Professionals In Selected OECD Countries. Norteamérica [online]. 2019, vol.14, n.1, pp.341-368.  Epub 30-Jun-2020. ISSN 2448-7228.  https://doi.org/10.22201/cisan.24487228e.2019.1.359.

The mainstream literature on skilled Diasporas has focused on economically-induced professional migration and free-choice mobility of educational elites. The author introduces the concept of conflict-induced displacement of skilled refugees (CIDSR) to study skilled Syrian refugees as political migrants who flee from violence and conflict in their home countries. She uses a cross-case analysis of seven OECD countries (Brazil, Canada, Germany, Mexico, Turkey, the U.K., and the U.S.) to prove that the Syrian CIDSR is a crisis but also an economic and political opportunity. OECD countries take advantage of the skilled refugees in order to maintain growth in their aging economies, solve brain drain caused by internal conflict, as well as to strengthen their status as moral powers.

Palabras llave : conflict-induced displacement of the skilled (CIDS); brain gain; Syrian refugees; OECD.
