The topic of expatriation has received much research attention in recent years. This results from the importance of expatriates for the internationalisation efforts of companies on the one hand and the far-reaching effects that such an international work experience has on the expatriates themselves on the other. This edited volume serves to provide fresh and timely insights into four areas, covering the individual, over the organisational, to the macro-level. First, expatriates’ career paths, the career capital they develop abroad and thus may be able to utilise later in their career, and the impacts of expatriation on the longer-term career success of individuals are in focus. The second block concerns the expatriation phase itself. A critical look is taken at the expatriates' identity and how it changes over time, and discusses factors influencing the expatriates' well-being, embeddedness and socio-cultural integration during their time abroad. Third, some key global mobility management challenges that organisations face when managing expatriation are introduced, such as flexible language management and how to become an international employer. Finally, insights are provided into the role of host country policies – more specifically hostile environment and migration policies – on expatriate attitudes and behaviour, which has received less attention in previous research. All four areas are finally brought together to present a rich overview of future research questions that shall stimulate researchers and practitioners in their further deliberations.

The chapters are based on selected results from the respective research subprojects of the Early Stage Researchers of the Horizon 2020 Global Mobility of Employees (GLOMO) project. This project was funded under the European Union's Research and Innovation Programme H2020 in the framework of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Grant Agreement No 765355.
