A new CGES Working paper ‘The notion of diaspora knowledge network revisited: Highly skilled migrants forming a new invisible college’ by Irina Antoshchuk, University of Amsterdam and St. Petersburg State University is now available.
This paper comes from the author’s doctoral research project “Russian computer scientists in the UK: migration, career and diaspora knowledge networks”, devoted to diaspora knowledge networks formed by Russian-speaking computer scientists as migrants from countries of former Soviet Union, who moved after 1991 and live(d) in the United Kingdom holding academic positions of teaching and research.
The study benefited from continuous support by the CGES and travel grants for collecting empirical material in 2015 and 2018, provided by the CGES to the author as a winner of two Russian-European research papers competitions organized by the Centre.
The sixth Competition is currently calling for papers by Russian and European students. Winners will receive financial support to conduct an empirical study in Europe (for Russian students) or Russia (for European students). For details, see.
