Abstract

This qualitative investigation focuses on the implementation of China's Recruitment Program for Global Experts (RPGE), exploring its impact on the mobility decisions of skilled Overseas Chinese (OCs). The findings suggest that employers, RPGE examiners, and RPGE officials can facilitate or impede the RPGE's implementation in the pursuit of their self- (and other-) interest. In addition, skilled OCs' decision to remain in their host country or return to China is determined by considerations as to whether the RPGE can satisfy both their monetary and non-monetary needs. This research offers empirical and conceptual contributions to the public policy and migration literature.
