This chapter offers a background in migration studies to understand the challenges and opportunities that labour mobility creates for people and organisations. Theoretical, empirical and historical tools are provided to interpret the context of contemporary labour migration from a critical perspective. Despite the growth of mobility and its greater significance at societal level, scholarship on this subject in HRM and cognate disciplines remains quantitatively and qualitatively limited. Here we employ an interdisciplinary approach, which highlights the social, gendered ad multinational dimensions of labour mobility. Assuming the migrant’s perspective, this review affords a more realistic picture of migration patterns and possibly a better understanding of the demands it makes on organisations.
