University of Groningen Press (UGP) has recently published a book 'Cities for talent: Good practices for internationalisation in medium-sized European cities' edited by Marian Counihan (University of Groningen) and Willem van Winden (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences).
Medium-sized cities across Europe are increasingly and actively attracting skilled migrants. How can these cities best manage the challenges of internationalisation? That is to say: How can they attract, facilitate and integrate skilled migrants, enabling them to contribute to the regional culture and economy, while still serving their local populations and maintaining social cohesion?
In this volume, the authors combine academic findings with policy reflections to provide a uniquely interdisciplinary guide for academics, policy makers and professionals in local governments, universities, HRM departments, for successfully co-ordinated international talent management.
The book is co-financed by the UG's open access book fund.
