Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript


Countries are competing ever more fervently to attract the best and brightest, whether highly skilled migrant workers, students with potential, or athletes and others boasting exceptional talent. It should therefore come as little surprise that they should vie with each other to lure in the wealthy as well. This chapter introduces the key characteristics, debates, and stakes in citizenship by investment and residence by investment programs.
