Abstract

This report presents the findings of qualitative research on the experience of skilled migrants in South Africa. The research is part of a broader project aimed at understanding skilled migration and how South Africa can improve its attractiveness to the 'best and brightest talent' needed for economic growth and development, i.e. attract, recruit and retain critical skills.
