British Expatriates in Global Financial Centres

Embeddedness, Knowledge and Networks: British Expatriates in Global Financial Centres
"As British financial transnational corporations (TNCs) have continued to concentrate their activities within global financial centres, they have become key locations for expatriate labour, whose specific knowledge, expertise, skills and intelligence are required in situ because of the crucial roles they have in ‘face-to-face’ contact between firm and client, financial markets, and business and social networks. The role of expatriate workers in global financial centres, however, still remains a relatively ‘invisible’ facet of globalization processes in the world economy. This project aims to provide a detailed and rigorous analysis of this very important and neglected facet of globalization."
