Mobility of Human Resources and Systems of Innovation: A Review of Literature by Thomas E. Pogue

A study of innovation systems and the factors prompting their participants’ movements, this analysis focuses on human mobility and the policies through which it influences such systems. The first section provides a historical and theoretical background to the study of mobility and its relationship to innovative capacity. The second looks at the empirical measurement of mobility and evidence of its relationship to innovative performance, while the third reviews policies used to affect the mobility of highly skilled individuals. Throughout the study, the focus is on the South African experience and its relation to the African and broader international experience.
