Abstract [en]

The paper argues for the need of research on work/non-work experiences of highly skilled migrants and thereby outlines a research field at the intersection of work/non-work and migration studies. A critical overview of the selected literature indicates the gaps in knowledge concerning the well-being of highly skilled migrants. The paper suggests that these gaps are to be filled by research that connects the theoretical approaches and empirical investigations on transnational practices and the processes of emplacement in the context of migration. The paper argues for an original perspective on researching the relation between work and non-work domains through its links to transnational and local dimensions of migrants’ well-being. Empirically, it argues for the relevance to conduct research on migrants in two especially relevant professional groups in Sweden, namely, physicians (medical doctors, irrespective of specialisation) and academics (teachers and researchers working in higher education, in other disciplines than medicine).

Note

The production of this paper was enabled by a grant from the Migrationens Utmaningar (The Challenges of Migration) programme – a collaboration between the City of Malmö, Malmö University and Region Skåne (http://www.mah.se/mu), for a pilot study The well-being of highly skilled migrants: The case of international physicians balancing work and migrant life in Skåne (2014-15) and by the first author’s research engagement at Agderforskning (http://www.agderforskning.no/), notably in connection to the project Work-life balance and well-being among highly skilled migrants within the health sector in Agder, funded by Regionale Forskningsfond Agder (2015-16).
