The global race for skilled immigrants seeks to attract the best global workers. In the pursuit of these individuals, governments may incidentally discriminate on gender grounds. Existing gendered differences in the global labour market related to life course trajectories, pay gaps and gendered divisions in occupational specialisation are also present in skilled immigration selection policies. Presenting the first book-length account of the global race for talent from a gender perspective, Gender, migration and the global race for talent will be read by graduate students, researchers, policy-makers and practitioners in the fields of immigration studies, political science, public policy, sociology and gender studies, and Australian and Canadian studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Gender, migration and the global race for talent addresses a key concern for twenty-first century governments: how to recognize and eliminate gender discrimination in skilled immigration policy. Anna Boucher offers a well-documented and critical cross-national comparative examination of skilled immigration policies across twelve OECD countries, across the past several decades, and proposes an overhaul of antiquated policies based on a "male breadwinner/female trailing spouse model" that do not match the realities of the twenty-first century skilled work force or employer needs, and do not align with values of diversity and equity.' Karen Garner, SUNY Empire State College -- .
